Short description
This text provides a comprehensive study of ionic interactions in macromolecules. The first part of the coverage reviews and analyzes the conventional treatments of fixed charges (e.g. in polyelectrolytes and polyampholytes), including screening and condensation by mobile ions. The book's second part discusses complex micellar organizations involving charged macromolecules (e.g. DNA) and low-molecular-weight ampholytes and strong protein associations. The resulting structures are relevant to a variety of functional biological systems and synthetic analogs. Chapters also describe applications such as deionization and cosmetic formulation.
