Ionically cross-linked polyelectrolyte complexes (PECs) of anionic poly(sodium 4-styrene sulfonate) (PSS) and cationic poly(diallyldimethylammonium chloride) (PDADMAC), xPSS.(1-x)PDADMAC, with molar fractions x ranging from 0.30 to 0.70, were prepared and subsequently dried. The PEC samples were analyzed by differential scanning calorimetry, and the ionic conductivity sigmadc of the samples was measured as a function of temperature by means of impedance spectroscopy. The thermograms display an… CONTINUE READING
