Investigation of segregation of polymer coils in open channel was extended relative to previous studies from flexible chains to semiflexible chains. Our results are based on simulation of confinement free energy of a chain in channel and on direct simulation of coil segregation process. For confinement free energy, we confirm the predicted opposite trend(More)
In the present work, we focus on the free volume evaluations from different points of view, including the aspect of probe sizes, temperature, and cavity threshold. The free volume structure is analyzed on structures of poly(vinyl methylether) prepared by fully atomistic molecular dynamics. At first, the temperature behavior of an overall free volume and a(More)
We studied the structure and dynamics of star-shaped polymers by means of coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations and analysis of structural transitions of semi-flexible macromolecules confined in nano-channels. The conformation of star arms in narrow channels is given by the channel width, arm flexibility and number of arms aligned together in the(More)
In this work we analyze and compare the free volume of a polymer system poly(vinyl methylether) (PVME) at 300 K obtained by the two direct but different approaches: Positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopy (PALS) and computer simulations. The free volume is calculated from the simulated cells of PVME by means of numerical methods based on grid scanning(More)
The spectral characteristics of monosubstituted derivatives of 2,2'-bithiophene (1-BT) with simple carbonyl substituents, including -COCF3 (trifluoroacetyl, 2-BTCF), -COCH2CN (oxopropanenitrile, 3-BTCN) and -COCH3 (acetyl, 4-BTCE), and the more complex 5'-((9H-fluoren-9-ylidene)methyl)-3-methyl, 5-methyl carboxylate (5-BTFL) were investigated.
