We report on a study of spherical polyelectrolyte brushes that consist of a solid core onto which linear polyelectrolyte chains are chemically grafted. The core particles are made up of solid poly(styrene) and have a radius R of ca. 50 nm. As polyelectrolyte chains the weak polyelectrolyte poly(acrylic acid) or the strong polyelectrolyte poly(styrenesulfonate) was used. These chains were generated directly on the surface of the core particles by a grafting-from technique. Hence, the chains are… CONTINUE READING
