Abstract

Monte Carlo simulations was used for studying the partitioning of polymer chains in the theta solution with a confined space of a slit having a width equal to or greater than the radius of gyration of the theta chains. The partition characteristics were compared with those of athermal chains. Scaling picture was used for studying the weak-to-strong penetration transitions.
