Nine papers from the August 2004 symposium in Philadelphia discuss the current theoretical and practical understanding in the synthesis of the two polymers and their application in various areas. Their topics include characterizing associative properties of amphiphilic polyelectrolytes and their self-assembled nanostructures in water, water-soluble copolymers and terpolymers of synthetic polyzwitterions, the controlled synthesis of polymers with ionic or ionizable groups using atom transfer radical polymerization, and applications of polyelectrolytes in aqueous media. Distributed in the US by Oxford University Press.
