Abstract Equilibrium Langevin dynamics of one-dimensional Lennard-Jones chains is studied. It is shown that depending on the noise strength, the friction constant and the number of particles, chains can synchronize, break, or remain desynchronized. Generally the synchronization time and the maximal Lyapunov exponent are found to depend on the number of particles and the ratio of noise strength to friction constant.
