We will investigate, through classical and reactive molecular dynamics simulations, the structural and dynamical properties of nanodroplets on graphene, boron nitride and silicene substrates. In particular, we intend to investigate the wetabillity properties and nanodroplet fracture patterns under dynamical impact against the substrates.
Among the various types of existing nanotubes, those based on peptides has attracted wide attention of the scientific community, since the peptide segments have high potential for self-assembly, and allows the addition of specific features in certain positions of the nanotube favoring their high biocompatibility. In this sense, the intrinsic ability to self-assembly presented by some pe...
The synthesis of graphene, an atom thick material with outstanding properties, triggered the renewed search for other layered materials, giving rise to the so-called 2D materials area. Although many of graphene properties are well understood, its wettability has been object of discussions due to conflicting data reported in the last years, with contamination by hydrocarbons being argued...
In this project we propose a computational study of peptide nanotubes formed from phenylalanine residues (diphenylalanine (FF), NH2-Phe-Phe-COOH). FF linear peptides nanotubes are formed under mild conditions in aqueous solution, with a very high yield, and can serve in various important applications. However, these nanotubes are still poorly studied at molecular level so that many aspe...
