Dynamical Simulations of the “Bricks-and-Mortar” Mesophase in Blends of Miktoarm Block Copolymers and Homopolymers


In this talk I followed up on my prior talk at AICHE on using molecular simulations to study the phase behavior of the bricks-and-mortar phase formed from a nonlinear block copolymer architecture; this talk had a primary focus on calculations of mechanical properties (viscosity, dynamic modulus, and Young’s modulus especially), with updates to my calculations where appropriate.
