Abstract

The radial distribution function g(r) has been calculated for a dilute polymer latex containing particles with an average radius of 25.6 nm. For this purpose the resulting structure factor, S(K), of a light-scattering measurement was used as input data for a reverse Monte Carlo (RMC) calculation. In this manner the problematic direct Fourier transformation of S(K) leading normally to g(r) could be avoided. Using the three-dimensional particle configurations that had been given by RMC, some features of the local structure, such as cosine distribution of bond angles, were also calculated.
