A bottlebrush polymer is a branched macromolecule composed of a linear chain (backbone) with sidechains densely tethered to it. High grafting density of side chains gives rise to various unique structural properties, such as highly extended conformations of their backbones and tunable character of their stiffness and rheological properties with degree of polymerization of the side chains. We conducted coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations to determine how the number of Kuhn segments in a bottlebrush backbone L and in the sidechains N affect size, stiffness, and structure of these molecules. We found that the size (mean-squared radius of gyration and end-to-end distance) and persistence length of bottlebrushes in a melt state scales as N1/2.
