Conformational behavior of comb-like polyelectrolytes in selective solvent: computer simulation study.

Abstract

In this work, we present molecular dynamics simulations of comb-like polyelectrolytes in selective solvent. The studied polymers have a neutral backbone and polyelectrolyte side chains. The solvent is poor for the backbone and the theta solvent for the side chains. The polymers are modeled on a coarse-grained level with implicit solvent. The simulations… (More)
