Polymer flooding is a promising chemical enhanced oil recovery method, which realizes more efficient extraction in porous formations characterized with nanoscale porosity and complicated interfaces. Understanding the molecular mechanism of viscoelastic polymer enhanced-oil-recovery in nanopores is of great significance for the advancement of oil exploitation. Using molecular dynamics simulations, we investigated the detailed process of the viscoelastic polymer displacing oil at the atomic scale. We found that the interactions between polymer chains and oil provide...
