The structure of void space in two- and three-dimensional (3D) polymer solutions is studied using Voronoi tessellation and percolation theory. The polymer molecules are modeled as freely jointed chains of N tangent hard disks (two dimensions) or spheres (three dimensions). Polymer chains are equilibrated via Monte Carlo simulations and the pore space in… CONTINUE READING
