Wetting of crystalline polymer surfaces: A molecular dynamics simulation

Abstract

Molecular dynamics has been used to study the wetting of model polymer surfaces, the crystal surfaces of polyethylene ~PE!, poly~tetrafluoroethylene! ~PTFE!, and poly~ethylene terephthalate! ~PET! by water and methylene iodide. In the simulation a liquid droplet is placed on a model surface and constant temperature, rigid body molecular dynamics is carried… (More)
