We use Monte Carlo algorithms to simulate, on the atomistic scale, the structure and rigidity of model linear dendronised polymers (LDPs) consisting of a poly(para-phenylene) backbone with laterally substituted Fréchet type dendritic units. A coarse-grained representation of united atoms interacting via steric repulsions is employed for the study of the(More)
A detailed molecular dynamics simulation study is described for a polysiloxane side chain liquid crystal polymer (SCLCP). The simulations use a coarse-grained model composed of a combination of isotropic and anisotropic interaction sites. On cooling from a fully isotropic polymer melt, we see spontaneous microphase separation into polymer-rich and(More)
