Molecular dynamics (MD) studies are presented of the cluster composed of cholesterol molecules near graphite wall. We have investigated the dynamical observables of cholesterol as a function of temperature. We focus our attention on the temperature evolution of the calculated total dipole moment autocorrelation function of cholesterol molecules and dielectric loss of the cluster. The comparison with the dielectric relaxation of pure cholesterol cluster (without graphite wall) is also presented and discussed.
