Abstract

Experimental results were interpreted by taking the NaCl concentration (Cs) dependence of the Young's modulus of PSCg system into consideration. The fact that the Young's modulus at Cs lower than 50mM was about ten times as high as that at Cs=100mM indicates that the network in the PSCg at the low Cs was more rigid than that at the high Cs. The rigid structures of PSCg were due to the network structure of the polyelectrolyte chains tightly wound around the surfactant aggregates, since the electrostatic attraction between the opposite charges was strong at the low Cs.
