The physiological functions of biological macromolecules strongly depend upon their conformation. Study of the thermodynamic and structural aspects of ion/polymer interactions has the potential to contribute to a more comprehensive understanding of ion mediated structural organization of charged biomacromolecules (e.g., nucleic acids, proteins,(More)
2014 Experimental measurements are reported of the deswelling process in presence of an external applied pressure of polyacrylamide gels at theta conditions. Analysis of the profile of the concentration gradient enables the swelling pressure as a function of concentration to be deduced as well as the collective diffusion coefficient D. To obtain an explicit(More)
