Phase Transitions of a Single Polyelectrolyte Chain in a Poor Solvent with Multivalent Counterions
A Varghese and S Vemparala and R Rajesh, SOLID STATE PHYSICS, PTS 1 AND 2, 1447, 129-130 (2012).
The phase transitions of a single polyelectrolyte chain in a poor solvent with divalent and trivalent counterions are studied. We identify the counterion condensation as a continuous transition and the extended- collapsed transition as a first order phase transition.
