5 The shape of a flexible polymer in a cylindrical pore

Abstract

The shape of a flexible polymer in a cylindrical pore G. Morrison a),b) and D. Thirumalai a),c),d) Abstract We calculate the mean end-to-end distance (R) of a self-avoiding polymer encapsulated in an infinitely long cylinder with radius D. A self-consistent perturbation theory is used to calculate R as a function of D for impenetrable hard walls and soft… (More)
