We examine by molecular dynamics simulations the relaxation of polymer-solvent mixtures close to the glass transition. The simulations employ a coarse-grained model in which polymers are represented by bead-spring chains and solvent particles by monomers. The interaction parameters between polymer and solvent are adjusted such that mixing is favored. We find that the mixtures have one glass transition temperature Tg or critical temperature Tc of mode-coupling theory (MCT). Both Tg and Tc (> Tg… CONTINUE READING
