Dear Colleagues Near & Far,
Its been snowing hard in Edmonton with over 30 cms of snow in the last week -- it feels like the holiday season already!
I would like to share our latest publication on molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of PMMA fragment dissolution and Flory-Huggins polymer physics theory. This work is something quite different as compared to my regular experimental focus, hence the share. It is also one of the few publications applying MD methods for understanding a nanofabrication topic. Please see attached and below.
Study of the interaction of polymethylmethacrylate fragments with methyl isobutyl ketone and isopropyl alcohol

Hopefully this would be useful or atleast insightful.
