Potato proteins in complex coacervates

Coach: Dr. Saskia Lindhoud, Nanobiophysics Complex coacervates are liquid phases which form when oppositely charged polyelectrolytes are mixed under the right conditions. Fig. 1 is a schematic diagram of the different phases which form when polyelectrolytes are mixed as a function of their composition (x-axis) and the salt concentration (y-axis). It can be seen that macroscopic complex coacervates only form around charge stoichiometry and above a certain salt concentration. Fig. 1. Stability diagram of polyelectrolyte complexes as a function of…
