Abstract

We show that Langevin dynamics can be used to obtain force-extension curves for a single polymer chain under varying solvent conditions. We find that the chains obey Hooke-type and Pincus regime behavior for Θ and good solvents. However, in poor solvents a coil-strand coexistence is observed in the equilibrium state and this leads to a quite different type of deformation behavior.
