The free-energy landscape of single-molecule polymer crystals

L. Larini, D. Leporini

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


By using extensive MD simulations the free-energy landscape of the crystallization process of a single polyethylene chain with N=500 monomers is determined and the roles of both the potential energy and the entropy in shaping its gross features are discussed.
