Abstract Molecular dynamics simulations are used to quantify the interaction forces between nanoparticles, which are critical to nanoparticle systems. It is shown that the fluctuation of surface atomic density and the dynamics of collisions significantly affect the interaction forces. As a result, the Hamaker method cannot accurately estimate the interaction forces for nanoparticles. The proposed approach offers an effective method for determining the interaction forces between nanoparticles. © 2010 American Chemical Society.
