 Abstract
We improve Wilehemski-Fixmann theory for intrachain reaction dynamics of a polymer chain by taking into account excluded volume effects between reactive groups in the polymerchain. An approximate analytic expression for the intra-chain reaction dynamics is obtained for Gaussian chain model and compared to Brownian dynamics simulation results. The results of the present theory are in a better agreement to Brownian dynamics simulation results than those calculated by previously reported theories.
