Effect of hydrophilicity or hydrophobicity of polyelectrolyte on the interaction between polyelectrolyte and surfactants: molecular dynamics simulations.

Abstract

The effect of hydrophilicity or hydrophobicity of polyelectrolyte on the interaction between polyelectrolyte and oppositely charged surfactants was investigated by using coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations. The aggregation of surfactants on the hydrophilic polyelectrolyte is significantly different from that on the hydrophobic polyelectrolyte. The… (More)
