Structure of Associated Mixtures with Various Number of Intermolecular Bonds: Numerical Simulation

Using models of thermoassociated polymers, a cellular model of associated solutions is developed for cases where molecules of a solute are able to form from 2 to 6 bonds with each other. It is shown that solutions associated by weak intermolecular interactions in a certain range of concentrations can be considered as systems of flickering pseudo-polymeric macromolecules with a fractal structure.
