The interaction between a double-hydrophilic comb copolymer with the polyanionic backbone poly[methacrylic acid-stat-poly(ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylate] (PMAA–PEGMA) and the cationic surfactant N-dodecylpyridinium chloride (DPCl) was studied in alkaline aqueous solutions by using a combination of light and X-ray scattering techniques, covering 5 orders of magnitude in space (the q vector range from 10–5 to 5 nm–1) and time (from milliseconds to several hours). The results showed… 
Sequence of Polyurethane Ionomers Determinative for Core Structure of Surfactant–Copolymer Complexes
This work shows that the monomer sequence of amphiphiles can be varied to alter the internal structure of surfactant–copolymer complexes, and suggests that these properties may be tuned through control of the monomers sequence of the micellar constituents.
Recent Advances in Complex Coacervation Design from Macromolecular Assemblies and Emerging Applications.
In this review, the most recent progress in the design strategies of macromolecular complex coacervate materials is discussed with respect to different key parameters, including macromolescular structure, mixing ratio, ionic strength, pH, and temperature.

It is shown that the formation of the colloidal complex is in agreement with overcharging predictions, in both systems, the amount of polyelectrolytes needed to build the core-shell colloids always exceeds the number that would be necessary to compensate the charge of the micelles.
