Complex coacervation is the associative phase separation in a solution of positively and negatively charged macroions. Despite the widespread use of coacervation in e.g. micellar assemblies (complex coacervate core micelles), drug carriers and thin films, there is virtually no experimental data on the interfacial tension between such coacervate phases (polyelectrolyte complexes) and their coexisting aqueous phases or on the influence of salt thereon. In this paper we use colloidal probe AFM… CONTINUE READING
