The effect of solvent quality on the behavior of a polyelectrolyte chain near a charged surface is studied using molecular dynamics simulation with explicit solvent. The polyion adsorbs completely on the surface for a high enough surface charge density, and the surface charge required for complete adsorption becomes lower as the solvent quality is decreased… CONTINUE READING
