A special and important task in medicinal implant technology is to prevent the material from fouling or make it compatible for tissues by coating the material with functionalized lipid biomolecules. In order to rationalize the design of such new materials structural information about the film is needed. In this presentation we give an account on the investigation of coating of the tetraetherlipid GDNT on a borofluorate surface in different solvents. To gain insights into the dynamic process on the microsecond and micrometer scale we applied our recently developed Molecular Fragment Dynamics method (MFD) .
