Abstract: The design of a biodegradable, environmentally friendly surfactant is carried out, taking the structure of a known surfactant that lacks these qualities as the starting point, using mesoscopic computer simulations. The newly designed surfactant is found to perform at least as well as its predecessor, without the latter´s inimical characteristics. In the second part of this work, a comparative study of model proteins with different amino acid sequence interacting with surfaces is undertaken. The results show t…
