Strangely behaving polyelectrolytes: polymers self-assembling into nanoparticles

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional


We describe some interesting properties of charged
polymers in water. We show how their solubilities
may be changed with counterions. We also show
two ways of preparing nanoparticles in a controlled
manner, either through phase separation or during
the synthesis. Finally, a short description of zwitter -
ionic polymers will be given.
