International Journal of Nanotechnology (IJNT), Vol. 2, No. 3, 2005

Abstract: Mesoscale simulations have traditionally been used to investigate structural morphology of polymers in solution, melts and blends. Recently, such modelling methods are being pushed to important areas of Nanotechnology and Drug delivery that are well out of reach of classical molecular dynamics. This paper describes our current efforts in three important emerging areas: polymer-nanotube composites; drug diffusivity through cell membranes; solvent-exchange in nanoporous membranes. Enhancements to existing codes, and future directions of research are indicated as well.
