Diffusion-controlled stepwise polymerization of a linear polymer confined in nanoscopic slits is simulated through a Monte Carlo approach. A noticeable influence of the confinement on the kinetics is found. The confinement modifies both the spatial pair distribution function and the diffusive properties of the polymers. As a consequence, the confined system… CONTINUE READING
