The interaction between gas-phase small molecules and polymer-coated microcantilevers results in interesting bending patterns. These bending patterns are modeled using diffusion-reaction equations. The model reveals the significance of two competing processes, namely, diffusion rate of the small molecules into the polymer and the relaxation of the guest(s)-polymer complex.
