Abstract

Polymer chains were investigated in the theta condition confined to a slit in a wide range of concentrations using mean-field Gaussian chain theory. The effective potential for the Gaussian chain was obtained using various existing lattice chain theories. Monomer density profile, partition coefficient and the chain dimension across the slit were calculated. It was shown that the density profile and the partition coefficient reflect the interaction between polymer chains.
