Molecular dynamics simulations of a polyelectrolyte star in poor solvent

Author affiliations

Abstract

We used Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations to investigate the conformations of a star polyelectrolyte in poor solvent. We observed several distinct morphologies: at low number of arms, pearl-necklace structures are formed on individual arms; at higher number of arms inter-arm bundling is the dominant structural motif.
