Novel Conformations of Isolated Semiflexible Block Copolymers

Hernandez-Zapata, E; Cooke, I; Williams, David

Description

We investigate the conformations of single regularly-repeating block copolymer chains with rigidity in a poor solvent. We predict the existence of two novel conformations - the stripey torus and the figure eight, and examine the stability of these theoretically.
