The effect of salt concentration on adsorption of low-charge-density polyelectrolytes and interactions between polyelectrolyte-coated surfaces

Abstract [en]

In this investigation surface force, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and ellipsometry techniques have been used to study the adsorption of a low-charge-density cationic polyelectrolyte on negatively charged surfaces. It is shown that the low cationicity of this polyelectrolyte induces an adsorption behavior which is limited by steric factors rather than by the substrate surface charge or potential. It is also established that an increase in ionic strength of the solution results in desorption of the polyelectrolyte accompanied by an increase in layer thickness. This phenomenon is typical of a screening-reduced adsorption regime where electrostatic interactions predominate in the adsorption process. An increase in layer thickness most often occurs as a result of an increased adsorbed amount. Here, however, the increase in layer thickness occurs despite a reduction in the adsorbed amount. This can be understood as resulting from a reduced polyelectrolyte-surface affinity and a swelling of the adsorbed layer. Finally, it is demonstrated that the employed techniques complement each other and reveal new information on the interaction forces and conformation of polyelectrolytes at the solid-liquid interface.
