The off-lattice Monte Carlo simulations were employed for the investigation of the equilibrium conformations of isolated comb copolymer ring molecules in an athermal solution. The influence of the length of the side chains on the conformational behavior was discussed. The shape of ring comb polymers was characterized by the elements of radius of gyration tensor of the backbone.
