16 for all 4 CH vectors at carbon 2. A substantial spitting at C1 of the glycerol (labeled G1 in Fig. 8) is also not reproduced by the 1. Considerations for Lipid Force Field Development 27 parameter set. The order parameters of the other glycerol carbons and the head group are reasonably obtained. It is possible that hydrogen bonds between the carbonyl oxygens and hydrogens on the chain and glycerol promote the observed pattern. C. NMR Spin-Lattice Relaxation Times and Possible Collective Effects Just as the deuterium order parameter probes the conformational preference of specific carbons of lipids in membranes, the spin lattice (or T1 ) relaxation time yields information on the underlying dynamics.

For carbons where both vesicle and multilayer data are available, simulations with C27r tend to be closer to the latter. This is encouraging, in that the multilayers are flat on a large length scale and thereby correspond more closely with the simulation geometry (where periodicity enforces flatness). The discrepancy of simulation and experiment at C3 is interesting. The simulated T1 is too low, implying that motion is too slow. From Fig. 1, the dynamics of C3 is directly impacted by the β4 and γ4 torsional surfaces, which, from Fig.

After a minimum energy structure is determined for each conformation, Eq. (4) (MP2:CC) is used to obtain the energy effectively at CCSD(T)/cc-pVQZ, which is nearly the value at the basis set limit; the SBS used is cc-pVDZ and the LBS is cc-pVQZ. The following objective function was used to obtain the alkane terms of C27r and the ester terms of the developmental force field, referred to here as C27r-a: # of QM points 2 UiQM − UiModel , χ= (5) i where Ui and is the energy for conformation i. A minimalist approach is used when fitting the dihedral potential in Eq.
