Modelling of solvent effect on the conformation of a chain grafted to the planar surface.

Poland / Польша

The conformation of an isolated linear polymer molecule near an inert impenetrable planar surface has been studied by means of the Monte Carlo method on the cubic lattice. The self-avoiding walk algorithm and some variants of self-repelling self-avoiding walk algorithm have been employed to simulate a polymer chain, allowing a simulation of the chain conformation in a wide solvent quality range.
