The effect of confinement on the phase behavior of lattice homopolymers has been studied using grand canonical Monte Carlo simulations in conjunction with multihistogram reweighting. The scaling of critical parameters and chain dimensions with chain length was determined for lattice homopolymers of up to 1024 beads in strictly 2D and quasi-2D (slab) geometries. The inverse critical temperature scales linearly with the Shultz Flory parameter for quasi-2D geometries, as it does for the bulk… CONTINUE READING
