Simulated Compression of Single Chain Polymer Nanoparticles (SCPN)

Graduate student Suwon Bae has published his work on the thermo-mechanical properties of single chain polymer nanoparticles in Soft Matter. This work is in collaboration with Or Galant of the Diesendruck group at the Technion who spent the summer as a visiting student in our lab. This first ever study on the mechanical properties of SCPN showed through molecular dynamics simulations that many of the design rules for bulk polymers apply to SCPN as well.
