Multiscale coarse graining of diblock copolymer self-assembly: from monomers to ordered micelles.

Abstract

Starting from a microscopic lattice model, we investigate clustering, micellization, and micelle ordering in semidilute solutions of AB diblock copolymers in a selective solvent. To bridge the gap in length scales, from monomers to ordered micellar structures, we implement a two-step coarse-graining strategy, whereby the AB copolymers are mapped onto… (More)
