Structure of colloid-polymer suspensions

Matthias Fuchs, Kenneth S. Schweizer

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The structural correlations in mixtures of free polymer and colloidal particles were discussed. The discussion was based on a microscopic, two-component liquid-state integral equation theory. Results showed that the structure factor of large polymers exhibited no ramified mesh and becomes Lorentzian characterized by the mixture of correlation length and it diverges at the spinodal.
