Kinetics of the Processes of Orientation and Adsorption in Polymer Adhesive Materials


An investigation is performed of the mechanism behind the peeling of an adsorbed flexible macromolecule from a surface under the action of a strong mean field formed by intermolecular interactions with other chains. The kinetic equation for the order parameter and its solution are obtained. The effect of a critical slowdown (in a sharp increase in periods of relaxation time at the critical point) is observed for finite chains.
