Abstract

Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of neutral, charged and polyampholyte polymers within a confined geometry were performed. The simulations provided a good test of polymer predictions for finite length chains. Furthermore, these simulations suggest a previously unexplored dependence of the properties of a tethered, confined polyampholyte on the charge sequence of the chain.
