Single-molecule study on the molecular interactions and folding mode in polymer single crystals

Establishing the relationship between the molecular structure and nanomechanical properties in lamellar crystals is of fundamental importance for the development of advanced crystalline polymer materials. We have used atomic force microscopy (AFM)-based single-molecule force spectroscopy and steered molecular dynamic simulations to investigate molecular interactions as well as the folding mode of a polymer chain within the single crystal at single-molecule level. Effects of chain conformation/composition, crystal thickness and environment on molecular interactions and dynamic force-induced melting process were studied.
