Interactions of cationic surfactants with a branched polymer, arabate (Ar), and a linear polymer, chondroitin sulfate (Chs), were investigated by the potentiometric technique using surfactant ion-selective electrodes. The results indicated a highly cooperative nature in the binding process of n-dodecyltrimethylammonium ion (DOTMA + ) with Chs, but not Ar, in spite of the similarity of the charge density parameter, c, between the two polymers. The cooperativity parameter, u, was estimated from… CONTINUE READING
