Monte Carlo simulation of dendrimers in variable solvent quality (2004)
Journal Article
Giupponi, G., & Buzza, D. M. A. (2004). Monte Carlo simulation of dendrimers in variable solvent quality. The Journal of chemical physics, 120(21), 10290-10298. doi:10.1063/1.1714829

The properties of g=1-6 dendrimers in variable solvent quality were studied using Monte Carlo simulation and Flory theory. It was found that the radius of gyration (Rg collapses significantly while going from athermal to extreme poor solvent conditio... Read More

Journal Article
Buzza, D. M. (2004). Power law polydispersity and fractal structure of hyperbranched polymers. European Physical Journal E, 13(1), 79-86. doi:10.1140/epje/e2004-00042-3

Using the complementary approaches of Flory theory and the overlap function, we study the molecular weight distribution and conformation of hyperbranched polymers formed by the melt polycondensation of A-RN0-Bf - 1monomers in their reaction bath clos... Read More
