In this project we intend to investigate, through molecular dynamics techniques, the reptation phenomena at nanoscale. Reptation is related to polymeric diffusion that resemble reptile movements, thus its name. In particular, we will investigate the polymeric diffusion at different geometries with a distribution of ordered and disordered obstacles and to verify whether the general trends are the same at macroscale.
