Exploring the relaxation time, bond length and length of the polymer chain in the kinetics of end-to-end looping of a long polymer chain

Abstract

We present a theoretical model for understanding the kinetics of a long polymer in solution. A Smoluchowski-like equation has been used to model the problem of polymer looping with a Dirac delta function sink of finite strength. The results for rate constants have been obtained by using Green’s function. In this model, the rate constants for end-to-end… (More)
