Paper Abstract

The subject of our scientific interest is the dynamics of the phospholipid molecules into a corrugated graphene sheet. According to our assumption by changing the topology of graphene properly it is possible to find the ways for management of the selective localization of phospholipid molecules to form the desired configuration of these structures. We considered DPPC (dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine) phospholipids, which are the part of cell membranes and lipoproteins. We investigated the behavior of the phospholipids on the graphene sheet consisting of 1710 atoms with the size of 6.9 nm along the zigzag edge and 6.25 nm along the armchair edge. The numerical experiment was carried out using the original AMBER/AIREBO hybrid method with Lennard-Jones potential to describe the interaction between unbound atoms of different structures. The temperature was maintained at 300 K during the numerical experiment. All numerical experiments were performed using KVAZAR software system. We considered several cases of corrugated graphene with different width and dept of the corrugation. Special attention in our work was paid to the orientation of the phospholipids in the plane of graphene sheet.
