Influence of solvent quality on effective pair potentials between polymers in solution.

Abstract:

Solutions of interacting linear polymers are mapped onto a system of "soft" spherical particles interacting via an effective pair potential. This coarse-graining reduces the individual monomer-level description to a problem involving only the center of mass (c.m.) of the polymer coils. The effective pair potentials are derived by inverting the c.m. pair distribution function, generated in Monte Carlo simulations, using the hypernetted chain closure. The method, previously devised for the self...
