Abstract

The mean spherical approximation for the thermodynamic properties and radial distribution functions of polyelectrolytes and counterions in solutions was solved analytically. The osmotic pressure predicted by the theory agreed well with available experimental results. Plots of radial distribution function vs separation for the three types of interactions (counterion-counterion, counterion-chain, and chain-chain) agree well with simulation data at high to moderate density.
