N2 - The distribution of neutral and charged polymers with different flexibilities between two spheres of varying volume connected by a short and narrow cylinder has been investigated by Monte Carlo simulations. The uncharged chain displayed mostly a single-sphere occupancy due to the high conformational entropy penalty of crossing the cylindrical domain, whereas for the charged polymer a double-sphere occupancy was obtained, except for very different spherical volumes. The origin of this different occupancy behavior stems from the counterion entropy. At increasing stiffness, a stronger preference for double-sphere occupancy was predicted.
