Abstract:

The thermodynamic properties of a 30 mer nanoscale heteropolymer chain were calculated with a Lennard-Jones (LJ) potential. A first order liquid to solid phase transition was observed as the final result of our calculations, with a minimum energy state at around −335 (reduced units) and a maximum energy state at around −194 (reduced units).
