Identification of molecular origins underlying the interfacial slip

A new study has discovered the fundamental principles of handling polymers. Researchers presented the intrinsic molecular characteristics of the slip phenomena by using atomistic nonequilibrium molecular dynamics simulations of polyethylene melts under shear flow. Polymer melts are polymers with an overall number average molecular weight of 10,000 in the liquid-like melt state without solvent.
