Abstract

We present a theoretical investigation that addresses the most important aspects of the interaction between α-glycero-phosphatidyl-choline and Au(111) surface. For the density functional calculations we employed both traditional exchange-correlation functionals and newly developed vdW-D2 corrected one. The comparison between these functionals allows us to spot the role of van der Waals effects into the molecule– surface interaction. The effect of an external field applied to the molecule–surface system was also explicitly investigated. Our results reveal a complex picture where the molecular adsorption is dominated by the interplay between a weak molecule–surface interaction and a rather important deformation energy of the adsorbed molecule. In the presence of an external electric field, the choline moiety provided the strongest response in terms of binding energy as well as geometric configuration of the adsorbate.
