Adsorption and depletion of polyelectrolytes from charged surfaces

Adi Shafir, David Andelman, Roland R. Netz

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Numerical calculations of the mean-field equations describing the adsorption of PE chains onto charged surfaces, including multichain interactions, were carried out. The main finding was the existence of an adsorption-depletion transition in the presence of added salt or weakly charged chains. The numerical results were detailed in terms of simple scaling arguments describing the adsorption of PEs.
