[1] Amphiphilic comb macromolecules with different distribution statistics of side-chain grafting sites: Mathematical modeling / A. A. Starostina, A. A. Klochkov, V. V. Vasilevskaya, A. R. Khokhlov // Polymer Science - Series A. — 2008. — Vol. 50, no. 9. — P. 1008–1017. The influence of the distribution statistics of side-chain grafting sites on the conformational properties of amphiphilic comblike macromolecules immersed in a solvent that is poor for the main chain and good for the side chains was studied. It was shown that the coil-globule transition for macromolecules with the protein-like distribution of side-chain grafting sites occurs at higher temperatures, wherein the size of the proteinlike macromolecules is generally smaller than that of the corresponding regular macromolecules. Regardless of distribution statistics of side-chain grafting sites, the coil-globule transition of comb macromolecules passes through the step of the formation of the beads-on-a-string conformation composed of micelle-like beads. The temperature dependence curves of the heat capacity exhibit at least two maximums associated with the coil-globule transition per se and the coalescence of the beads into a single globule. The coil-globule transition temperature is slightly dependent upon the degree of polymerization of the main chain and drops with a decrease in the degree of polymerization of the side chains. It was found that comb macromolecules can form spherical, disklike, or cylindrical globules, depending on the structural parameters. [ DOI ]
