Thermodynamics of the conformational transition of biopolyelectrolytes: the case of specific affinity of counterions.

Abstract

A formal development of the Counterion Condensation theory (CC) of linear polyelectrolytes has been performed to include specific (chemical) affinity of condensed counterions, for polyelectrolyte charge density values larger than the critical value of condensation. It has been conventionally assumed that each condensed counterion exhibits an affinity free… (More)
