The interplay of the polyelectrolyte-surface electrostatic and non-electrostatic interactions in the polyelectrolytes adsorption onto two charged objects--a self-consistent field study



The interplay of the polyelectrolyte-surface electrostatic and non-electrostatic interactions in the polyelectrolytes adsorption onto two charged objects--a self-consistent field study



Journal of Chemical Physics 137(10): 104904



The continuum self-consistent field (SCF) theory is applied to the study of the adsorption of flexible polyelectrolytes (PEs) onto the surfaces of two parallel and infinitely long charged columns, taking into account the short-range monomer-surface non-Coulombic interaction. Due to the complex interplay between the electrostatic and surface interactions, very interesting PE adsorption behaviors in terms of the degree of charge compensation and the bridging chain conformation are found from the numerical solution of the SCF equations. The screening-enhanced salt effect and the permanent adsorption of PEs, irrespectively of the salt concentration, emerge in the presence of the monomer-surface non-electrostatic interaction. The numerical results reveal that, for relatively weak monomer-surface interactions, the degree of charge compensation decreases with increasing monomer-surface interaction. Numerical result shows that, for the strength of monomer-surface interaction above the desorption-adsorption critical value and in a salt-free solution, the total amount of the adsorbed PE chains is linearly proportional to the surface charge density in the high PE charge fraction regime.
