Dynamical scaling of two-dimensional (2D) polymers in dilute solutions was investigated. Analytical arguments for the size dependence of the diffusion coefficient were presented. Mesoscopic simulations of a 2D polymer in a good solvent with full hydrodynamic interactions were used to verify dynamical scaling. It was observed using computer simulations that dynamical scaling holds when the relevant dynamical quantities are properly extracted from finite systems.
