Statistical thermodynamics of polymers near surfaces

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Recent developments in molecular theoretical approaches have improved our understanding of experimental observations of the thermodynamic and structural properties of tethered polymer layers, in particular for short to intermediate chain length molecules. The theoretical treatment of surface segregation behavior in thin films of isomeric polymer blends and block copolymers has recently been shown to require the inclusion of the detailed chemical architecture of the chains as well as of the bulk and surface interactions.
