Polymers grafted to a fluid and flexible membrane: extreme sensitivity to the grafting density.

Abstract

Equilibrium phase coexistence between two chemical species implies the equality of the chemical potentials and of the osmotic pressures. We study this problem on a deformable membrane when one type of the molecules serves as anchor for polymeric chains immersed in the surrounding medium (considered as a good solvent). We derive the general conditions for… (More)
