Swelling and shrinking of polymer chains in homopolymer blends

Author(s): Aksimentiev, A and Holyst, R
Title: Swelling and shrinking of polymer chains in homopolymer blends
Abstract: The radius of gyration, R, of polymer chains in homopolymer blends is in the framework of a self-consistent one-loop approximation. We that the polymer chains can shrink or swell in comparison to the chain. Swelling of the polymer chains in a region far away from critical point is caused by the steric repulsive forces that were in the model as the constraint of incompressibility. The chains progressively, as we approach the critical region passing through
