Abstract

A detailed atomistic molecular mechanics model has been developed for the polycarbonate of bisphenol-A (PC). The technique used has been successfully applied earlier to simple vinyl polymers and is employed in this study to generate dense (glassy) packing of PC. The resulting microstructures are being used to investigate the inelastic behavior of PC. The first such application is the phenylene ring flip which occurs in glassy PC. The ring flip is a feature of PC which has been widely studied using various NMR techniques and as the simplest of inelastic processes is amenable for simulation and study using the generated microstructures.
