Computer simulation of polymer networks: swelling by binary Lennard-Jones mixtures.


The swelling of regular, tightly meshed model networks is investigated by a molecular-dynamics-Monte Carlo hybrid technique. The chemical equilibrium between two simulation boxes representing the gel phase and a solvent bath, respectively, is obtained by subjecting the Lennard-Jones particles of a binary mixture, serving as explicit solvent, to the particle… (More)
