Sammanfattning

Copolymers of sodium maleate with Me methacrylate, styrene, or vinyl acetate have been synthesized and studied in aq. NaCl solns. of various ionic strengths. The polymers are polyelectrolytes with varying hydrophobicities, and their soln. properties have been studied using static and dynamic light scattering. Copolymers contg. Me methacrylate or styrene were shown to aggregate in water upon increasing salt concn. Copolymers of sodium maleate and vinyl acetate do not assoc. with increasing ionic strength. The binding of bovine serum albumin and cytochrome C to the sodium maleate copolymers was also investigated by light scattering. It was obsd. that cytochrome C forms complexes with the copolymers contg. Me methacrylate or vinyl acetate whereas albumin does not bind to any of the copolymers studied. [on SciFinder(R)]
