The fundamental understanding of polyelectrolytes in aqueous solutions is an important branch of polymer research. In this work, the rheological properties of polyelectrolytes and polyelectrolyte/surfactant systems are studied. Various synthetic poly electrolytes are chosen with varied hydrophobicity. We discuss the effects of adding various surfactants to aqueous solutions of poly(ethylene oxide)- b -poly(propylene oxide)- b -polyethylene oxide)- g -poly(acrylic acid) (PEO-PPO-PAA) in the first chapter. Thermogelation in aqueous solutions of PEO-PPO-PAA is due to micellization caused by aggregation of poly(propylene oxide) (PPO) blocks resulting from temperature-induced dehydration of PPO. When nonionic surfactants with hydrophilic-lipophilic balance (HLB) parameter exceeding 11 or C n alkylsulfates; n-octyl (C 8 ), n-decyl (C 10 ) and n-dodecyl (C 12 ) sulfates are added, the gelation threshold temperature (T gel ) of 1.0wt% PEO-PPO-PAA in aqueous solutions increases. In contrast, when nonionic surfactants with HLB below 11 are added, the gelation temperature decreases. On the other hand, alkylsulfates with n = 16 or 18 and poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) do not affect the T gel . The results imply that both hydrophobicity and tail length of the added surfactant play important roles in the interaction of PEO-PPO-PAA micelles and the surfactant. In the second chapter, the solution behavior of alternating copolymers of maleic acid and hydrophobic monomer is studied. The alternating structure of monomers with two-carboxylic groups and hydrophobic monomers make these copolymers unique. Under appropriate conditions, these carboxylic groups dissociate leaving charges on the chain. The potentiometric titrations of copolymer solutions with added CaCl 2 reveal two distinct dissociation processes corresponding to the dissociation of the two adjacent carboxylic acids. The viscosity data as a function of polymer concentration of poly(isobutylene- alt -sodium maleate), poly(styrene- alt -sodium maleate) and poly(diisobutylene- alt -sodium maleate) show the polyelectrolyte behavior as predicted. However, the viscosity as a function of concentration of sodium maleate based copolymers with 1-alkenes; 1-octene (C8), 1-decene (C10), 1-dodecene (C12) and 1-hexene (C14) exhibit an abnormal scaling power, which might be caused by aggregation of the alkene tails to form micelles. In the last chapter, we report the rheological properties of aqueous solutions of poly(acrylic acid) and oppositely charged surfactant, dodecyl trimethylammonium bromide (C 12 TAB). The solution viscosity decreases as surfactant is added, partly because the polyelectrolyte wraps around the surface of the spherical surfactant micelles, shortening the effective chain length. The effects of polymer molecular weight, polymer concentration, and polymer charge have been studied with no added salt. The results are compared with the predictions of a simple model based on the scaling theory for the viscosity of dilute and unentangled semidilute polyelectrolyte solutions in good solvent. This model takes into account two effects of added surfactant. The effective chain length of the polyelectrolyte is shortened when a significant fraction of the chain wraps around micelles. Another effect is the change of solution ionic strength resulting from surfactant addition that further lowers the viscosity. The parameters used in this model are independently determined, allowing the model to make a quantitative prediction of solution viscosity with no adjustable parameters. The model is also applied to predict the decrease in viscosity of various polyelectrolyte/oppositely charged surfactant systems reported in literature. The results are in good agreement with experimental data, proving that our model applies to all polyelectrolytes mixed with oppositely charged surfactants that form spherical micelles.
