MITSG 82-13

This paper reports on an evaluation of the effect of ionic strength on interchain interactions. A cationic polyelectrolyte, chitosan, was used. Results indicate a rearrangement of the molecular chains in the network under tensile stress and the electrostatic nature of the interactions responsible for the network integrity of the polyelectrolyte films.
