  • Possible Interactions in a Dispersion System

  • IntroductionChallenges in real formulations containing high salt concentration.Homogenous or dispersed Stable with time or temperaturePourablein a wide range of temperatureLow salt concentration rangecharge screened; polymer collapsed, etc.Ultra-High salt concentration, morphology of polymer chain and its function?The interaction of polyelectrolyte and salt Coil-Collapse-Re-expansion

  • Radius of Gyration in concentrated salt solutionRg grows exponentially with salt level increase in entanglement Concentration

  • Hydrodynamic Radius in salt solutionAt higher salt level, PAA molecules oscillate within a larger effective region.RH increases with polymer concentration after a certain threshold PAA level.

  • Ion Condensation on PolymersIon condensation happens and the salt species condensed onto PAA chains.

    Larger molecules are more effective in holding salts than smaller chains.

  • Low MwHigh MwSpeculation---Concentration DependenceNo SaltHigh Salt

  • Higher Salt Level More Rheological Sensitivity to PAA ConcentrationViscosity increases with PAA concentration at all salt levels.At high salt level, the increase in viscosity with PAA concentrationis more significant.

  • Higher Salt Level More Rheological Sensitivity to TemperatureViscosity decreases with temperature at all salt levels.At high salt level, the decrement in viscosity with temperatureis more significant.

  • Concluding unfolded and more hydrated. 2.plays a more dominant role on the rheologicalbehavior of the system.3.holds more salt locally. As salt level increases, PAALarger molecules are more efficient in holding ions locally.

  • Future PlansConduct light scattering, rheological, conductivity measurements on multi-component system.

    2.Elucidate the overall mechanism by which dispersion and flow properties are controlled in the system.NSF-Industry/University Cooperative Research Center All the Industrial CollaboratorsWe owe great thanks to:
