Polyelectrolytes are charged macromolecules. We investigate the rheological, structural and interfacial properties of polyelectrolytes using rheometry, static and dynamic light scattering, chromatography and tensiometry. We also investigate the effect of hydrophobic modification on solution properties of polyelectrolytes. Structural parameters investigated are charge level, hydrophobe content, hydrophobe size and structure.
