Abstract

This study compares the performance of the all-atom molecular dynamics force fields OPLS-AA and COMPASS, and the united-atom GROMOS96 ff53a6 force field, for organic monolayers at aqueous interfaces, as a function of surface density, temperature, and system size. Where possible, comparison with experimental data was undertaken and used to scrutinize the performance of each force field. We find close agreement between the all-atom force fields (OPLS and COMPASS) and experiment for the description of organic monolayers on water. However, the united-atom force field 53a6 tends to exhibit poorer agreement than the all-atom force fields
