2 February 2012 Strain-hardening effect of graphene on a chitosan chain for the tissue engineering
Author Affiliations +
We report the results of the chitosan dimer study, the mechanism of its interaction with the carbon nanostructures and also the mechanical properties of the chitosan/graphene, chitosan/nanotube complexes using the density function and the molecular dynamic methods. It was established that the physical adsorption of the chitosan with graphene is carried out by the Van der Waals interaction between the hexagonal links of the chitosan with the hexagonal cell of the atomic grid of graphene and nanotube.
