Abstract:The formalism for the calculation of translational friction coefficients of symmetric top macromolecules presented in a previous paper [M. M. Tirado and J. Garcia de la Torre, J. Chem. Phys. 71, 2585 (1979») is here extended to the evaluation of rotational friction and diffusion coefficients. We show how the introduction of symmetry considerations leads to a great reduction of the computational requirements needed to solve the hydrodynamic interaction equations. We also obtain the translation-rotation coupling… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
