This book is a comprehensive study of the subject of ionicinteractions in macromolecules. The first parts of the book reviewand analyze the conventional treatments of fixed charges (e.g. inpolyelectrolytes and polyampholytes), including screening andcondensation by mobile ions. The interaction of ions with lesspolar sites on the macromolecule (e.g. amide bonds), and the originof the lyotropic effects (focusing on binding versus condensation)will also be extensively addressed.

The book also explores complex micellar organizations involvingcharged macromolecules (e.g. DNA) and low-molecular-weightampholytes and strong protein associations. The resultingstructures are relevant to a variety of functional biologicalsystems and synthetic analogs. The contribution of electrostaticand hydrophobic interaction to the stability of proteins and othersupramolecular structures will also be analyzed. There are chapterson applications such as deionization and cosmetic formulation.

This 21-chapter book is divided into three sections:
