Topological Effects in Isolated Poly[n]catenanes: Molecular Dynamics Simulations and Rouse Mode

“Topological Effects in Isolated Poly[n]catenanes: Molecular Dynamics Simulations and Rouse Mode Analysis,” P.M. Rauscher, S.J. Rowan, JJ de Pablo ACS Macro Letters, 7, 938-943, 2018

Overview

Molecular dynamics simulations of isolated poly[n]catenanes have been conducted, along with a Rouse mode analysis. At large length scales poly[n]catenanes do not relax much slower than isolated linear polymers and are less strongly impacted by increased segmental stiffness.
