Abstract

A study was performed on the theoretical treatment of charge-transfer (CT) interaction in an aqueous solution of polyelectrolyte. Molecular orbital theory was adopted to explain theoretically the CT complexation. The results showed that by the approximation of the theory, a distinct linear relation between the energies of the CT absorption band and ionization potentials of the donor molecules was derived although the stoichiometry ratios of CT complexes which formed around the polyion were different.
