Effect of Concentration on the Ionic Interaction between Polystyrene Sulfonate and Cationic Surfactant in Aqueous Solution


Article Preview

Polystyrene sulfonate (PSS) were prepared by sulfonation method of polystyrene using sulfuric acid. Abundant amount of polystyrene waste can be reused as a coagulant, membrane for polymer fuel cell and anionic-cationic polymer interactions. The characterization of PSS was carried out by using UV-Vis, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectra, molecular weight and analysis of sulfonation degree. The degree of sulfonation was obtained at 94,18%. Ionic interaction between anionic polymer PSS and cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) as cationic compound in aqueous solution were analyzed by using dynamic light scattering (DLS), conductometry and fluorimetry. Behavior of conductivity have been calculated the critical micelle concentration (cmc). The FTIR and 1H-NMR spectra showed the ionic interaction between PSS and CTAB. This ionic interaction can be controlled by changing the polymer concentration.
