We present results of monomer-resolved Monte Carlo simulations for a system of amphiphilic dendrimers of the second generation. Our investigations validate a coarse-grained level description based on the zero-density limit effective pair-interactions for low and intermediate densities, which predicted the formation of stable, finite aggregates in the fluid phase. Indeed, we find that these systems form a homogeneous fluid for low densities, which, on increasing the density, spontaneously… CONTINUE READING
