    Abstract

    We study microphase separation between ends and branches in randomly branched globular polymers. The main result of this work is that when the interaction energetics between monomers correspond to strong enough separation, a regular domain structure appears. The period of this structure is calculated. It is large when linear parts of the chain connecting ends and branched points are long.
