Collapse of Semiflexible Brushes in Poor Solvents: Tilting and Bending

Bright, Joanne Nicole; Williams, David

Description

We study the problem of a semi-flexible polymer brush immersed in a poor solvent and show that the brush is unstable to collapse. We are able to solve the problem exactly by mapping it onto one of a classical particle in a known potential. In contrast to
