A new force field including charge directionality for TMAO in aqueous solution
Kota Usui, Yuki Nagata, Johannes Hunger, Mischa Bonn and Marialore Sulpizi
J. Chem. Phys.145,064103 (2016);

We propose a new force field for trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO), which is designed to reproduce the long-lived and highly directional hydrogen bond between the TMAO oxygen (OTMAO) atom and surrounding water molecules. Based on the data obtained by ab initio molecular dynamics simulations, we introduce three dummy sites around OTMAO to mimic the OTMAO lone pairs and we migrate the negative charge on the OTMAO to the dummy sites. The force field model developed here improves both structural and dynamical properties of aqueous TMAO solutions. Moreover, it reproduces the experimentally observed dependence of viscosity upon increasing TMAO concentration quantitatively. The simple procedure of the force field construction makes it easy to implement in molecular dynamics simulation packages and makes it compatible with the existing biomolecular force fields. This paves the path for further investigation of protein-TMAO interaction in aqueous solutions.

Molecular Dynamics Simulations of SFG Librational Modes Spectra of Water at the Water–Air Interface

J. Phys. Chem. C120 (33),18665–18673 (2016);

At the water–air interface, the hydrogen-bond network of water molecules is interrupted, and accordingly, the structure and dynamics of the interfacial water molecules are altered considerably compared with the bulk. Such interfacial water molecules have been studied by surface-specific vibrational sum-frequency generation (SFG) spectroscopy probing high-frequency O–H stretch and H–O–H bending modes. In contrast, the low-frequency librational mode has been much less studied with SFG. Because this mode is sensitive to the hydrogen-bond connectivity, understanding the librational mode of the interfacial water is crucial for unveiling a microscopic view of the interfacial water. Here, we compute the SFG librational mode spectra at the water–air interface by using molecular dynamics simulation. We show that the modeling of the polarizability has a drastic effect on the simulated librational mode spectra, whereas the spectra are less sensitive to the force field models and the modeling of the dipole moment. The simulated librational spectra display a peak centered at ∼700 cm–1, which is close to the infrared peak frequency of the liquid water librational mode of 670 cm–1. This indicates that the librational mode of the interfacial water at the water–air interface closely resembles that of bulk liquid water.

Energy dissipative characteristic schemes for the diffusive Oldroyd-B viscoelastic fluid

URL: wileyonlinelibrary.com

In this paper, we propose new energy dissipative characteristic numerical methods for the approximation of diffusive Oldroyd-B equations that are based either on the finite element or finite difference discretization. We prove energy stability of both schemes and illustrate their behavior on a series of numerical experiments. Using both the diffusive model and the logarithmic transformation of the elastic stress, we are able to obtain methods that converge as mesh parameter is refined.

Computational materials discovery in soft matter
T. Bereau, D. Andrienko, K. Kremer
APL Mat4,053101 (2016);

Soft matter embodies a wide range of materials, which all share the common characteristics of weak interaction energies determining their supramolecular structure. This complicates structure-property predictions and hampers the direct application of data-driven approaches to their modeling. We present several aspects in which these methods play a role in designing soft-matter materials: drug design as well as information-driven computer simulations, e.g., histogram reweighting. We also discuss recent examples of rational design of soft-matter materials fostered by physical insight and assisted by data-driven approaches. We foresee the combination of data-driven and physical approaches a promising strategy to move the field forward.

Comparison of systematic coarse-graining strategies for soluble conjugated polymers
Christoph Scherer and Denis Andrienko
Eur. Phys. J. Spec. Top.225,1441-1461, (2016);

We assess several systematic coarse-graining approaches by coarse-graining poly(3-hexylthiophene-2,5-diyl) (P3HT), a polymer showing π-stacking of the thiophene rings and lamellar ordering of the π-stacked structures. All coarse-grained force fields are ranked according to their ability of preserving the experimentally known crystalline molecular arrangement of P3HT. The coarse-grained force fields parametrized in the amorphous melt turned out to accurately reproduce the structural quantities of the melt, as well as to preserve the lamellar ordering of the P3HT oligomers in π-stacks. However, the exact crystal structure is not reproduced. The combination of Boltzmann inversion for bonded and iterative Boltzmann inversion with pressure correction for nonbonded degrees of freedom gives the best coarse-grained model.

Computing bulk and shear viscosities from simulations of fluids with dissipative and stochastic interactions
Gerhard Jung, Friederike Schmid
The Journal of Chemical Physics144 (20),204104 (2016);

Exact values for bulk and shear viscosity are important to characterize a fluid, and they are a necessary input for a continuum description. Here we present two novel methods to compute bulk viscosities by non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations of steady-state systems with periodic boundary conditions — one based on frequent particle displacements and one based on the application of external bulk forces with an inhomogeneous force profile. In equilibrium simulations, viscosities can be determined from the stress tensor fluctuations via Green-Kubo relations; however, the correct incorporation of random and dissipative forces is not obvious. We discuss different expressions proposed in the literature and test them at the example of a dissipative particle dynamics fluid.
