Title: Intermolecular structural correlations in model globular and unconcatenated ring polymer liquids

Abstract

We employ the field theoretic polymer integral equation theory to construct a segment-level theory for the pair structure and thermodynamics of dense liquids of simple globule and ring polymers. We find that the partially interpenetrating behavior of rings is reflected in a deeper correlation hole and in a limited number of neighbors, in stark contrast to chains.
