We report dynamic Monte Carlo simulations and statistical thermodynamic theories of a lattice-polymer model, in which polymer crystallization and liquid-liquid demixing of semiflexible homopolymer solutions were investigated simultaneously. In our simulations, the equilibrium phase transition temperature was approached by the onset of phase transitions on… CONTINUE READING
