Coarse-grained simulation of amphiphilic self-assembly

Article English OPEN
Michel, D. J.; Cleaver, D. J.;

<p>We present a computer simulation study of amphiphilic self assembly performed using a computationally efficient single-site model based on Gay-Berne and Lennard-Jones particles. Molecular dynamics simulations of these systems show that free self-assembly of micellar,... View more
