Dielectric Relaxation of a Cholesterol Domain Near a Graphite Wall - A Computer Simulation
Molecular dynamics (MD) studies are presented for a cholesterol domain near a graphite wall. The dynamic observables of cholesterol at the physiological temperature of 309 K were investigated. Attention was focused on the total dipole moment → M autocorrelation function ( ) ( ) ( ) / (0)2 ∧ → → → C t = M t ⋅M t M and the dielectric loss spectrum ε’’(ν). Additionally, the comparison with the dielectric relaxation of a pure cholesterol cluster without a graphite wall is presented and discussed.
