Abstract

Molecular dynamics simulations were used to study the physics of poly(ethylene oxide) oligomers in severe confinement. An atomistically explicit model for intercalated system, which mimiced poly(ethylene oxide) confined between montmorillonite layers, was employed. A coexistence of fast and slow relaxation times was observed for the nanoscopically confined chains, over a wide temperature range.
