Title

Molecular studies of peptides at solid-liquid interfaces

Abstract

"Monte Carlo simulation runs were performed on a negatively charged model peptide (consisting of diblock units of aspartic acid and isoleucine residues) adsorbed at a charged model surface (consisting of CH₂ atoms) in vacuum, and in presence of various solvent compositions (by addition of cosolvents) to study the conformational and orientational aspects of peptides at solid surfaces:--Abstract, leaf iv.
