Insight into fractal self-assembly of poly(diallyldimethylammonium chloride)/sodium carboxymethyl cellulose polyelectrolyte complex nanoparticles.

Poly(diallyldimethylammonium chloride)-sodium carboxymethyl cellulose polyelectrolyte complexes (PDDA-CMCNa PECs) solids were prepared and dispersed in NaOH aqueous solution. Self-assembly of PECs nanoparticles during the solvent evaporation was examined by field emission electron microscopy (FESEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), and fractal dimension… CONTINUE READING
