Spherical brushes within spherical cavities: a self-consistent field and Monte Carlo study.

Abstract

We present an extensive numerical study on the behavior of spherical brushes confined into a spherical cavity. Self-consistent field (SCF) and off-lattice Monte Carlo (MC) techniques are used in order to determine the monomer and end-chain density profiles and the cavity pressure as a function of the brush properties. A comparison of the results obtained… (More)
