Abstract The goal of the work is the simulation of LC and their fragments orientation calculating an interaction energy between atoms of different molecules with atoms of a substrate surface with regular structure (graphite, polyethylene) and angles characterizing their orientation towards the surface. A model of a contacting surface is proposed to explain the type of LC alignment.
