The structural properties of model microgel particles are investigated by molecular dynamics simulations applying a coarse-grained model. A microgel is comprised of a regular network of polymers internally connected by tetra-functional cross-links and with dangling ends at its surface. The self-avoiding polymers are modeled as bead-spring linear chains. Electrostatic interactions are taken into account by the Debye-Hückel potential. The microgels exhibit a quite uniform density under baddoi:10.3390/polym6051602 fatcat:xaitmjjxtjak5hs5qkr2aw7uhi
