    Abstract

    The chain length dependence of the size of a toroidal globule and the shift of transition lines in the coil-globule state diagram for single stiff-chain macromolecules of different chain length was analyzed. The investigation was performed using a mean field theoretical approach and Monte Carlo computer simulations. The theoretical and computer simulation results for phase diagram and toroidal size showed reasonable agreement.
