Abstract

The kinetics of reactions were examined by the fluorescence quenching technique, polymethyl methacrylate having been used as the fluorescently tagged polyanion and poly(N-ethyl-4-vinylpyridinium bromide) (PEVP) performing as the quenching agent. The effectiveness of quenching was determined by the amount of PEVP introduced or by the composition of nonequimolar interpolyelectrolyte complexes produced. The data obtained, kinetic curves represented as conversion vs. time, demonstrate the great effect of low-molecular electrolytes on the rate of interpolyelectrolyte reactions.
