Abstract

The conformational analysis in ABA triblock melts was presented using Monte Carlo simulation. The configurational space was sampled according to the dynamic Monte Carlo (MC) method using the Metropolis importance sampling and silthering snake algorithm. Results showed that the loop conformation became preferred to the bridge conformation as the unfavourable interaction became stronger even above microphase separation temperature (MST).
