Fundamentals of electrostatic charging of polymers.

Germany / Германия

In our work we will show that the electrostatic charging of polymers can be described by their molecular electron pair acceptor and donator properties. In addition, we will discuss collective and environmental effects controlling the polymers’ charging and discharging equilibrium. AFM studies showed that oppositely charged domains can stably exist on polymer surfaces side by side.
