Complex coacervation of Mg(II) phospho-polymethacrylate, a synthetic analog of sandcastle worm adhesive phosphoproteins

A phospho-methacrylate analog of sandcastle worm adhesive phosphoproteins forms temperature and pH dependent complex coacervates with Mg(II) ions through outer shell H-bonds and inner shell coordinate bonds in natural environmental conditions of the sandcastle worm.

A biocompatible betaine-functionalized polycation for coacervation

Betaine, a naturally occurring amino acid, is conjugated onto a polyester backbone, in which the quaternary ammonium group imparts additional functionality to the resulting polycation (B-PED). B-PED demonstrates excellent in vitro and in vivo biocompatibility and is also assessed for its effect on angiogenesis, anti-bacterial activity, and complex coacervation.

Rheological characterization of liquid-to-solid transitions in bulk polyelectrolyte complexes

We use linear viscoelasticity measurements to characterize the salt-driven liquid-to-solid transition of ‘saloplastic’ polyelectrolyte complexes.
