This self-similarity extends from the structure of a few monomeric repeat units to the size of the entire molecule, which is comprised of hundreds or thousands of monomers.
Biological and synthetic membranes: What can be learned from a coarse-grained description?
Clearly the chain dimensions depend on the chemical identity of the monomeric units in a very subtle manner, but for the description of the large scale properties a single, coarse-grained, parameter, the end-to-end distance, suffices.
Biological and synthetic membranes: What can be learned from a coarse-grained description?
For polymer solutions the relevant properties are the connectivity of the monomeric units along the backbone and the excluded volume interaction between monomeric units.
Biological and synthetic membranes: What can be learned from a coarse-grained description?
This concept also carries over to AB diblock copolymers which consist of two blocks composed of NA and NB , monomeric units.
Biological and synthetic membranes: What can be learned from a coarse-grained description?
The resultant implicit solvent models have enjoyed long-standing popularity in polymer physics where the behavior of polymers in solvents of different qualities often is described by polymers in vacuum with effective interactions between the monomeric units.
Biological and synthetic membranes: What can be learned from a coarse-grained description?
Particles repel each other via a soft core potential which defines the energy scale, ǫ, and the monomeric length scale, σ .
