Coffee & Coacervates: Complexation and coacervation of like-charged polyelectrolytes inspired by mussels

Coffee & Coacervates is back for the semester! This week we will be discussing complexation and coacervation of two positively charged polyelectrolytes by overcoming longer-range electrostatic repulsion. This study was inspired by marine mussel adhesives, where complexation of the like-charged coacervate is most likely driven by strong cation–π interactions.

Where: Northwest Corner Building, 8th floor conference room
