Reversibly electrostatically cross-linked polymer networks composed of oppositely charged four-armed star block copolymers feature favorable properties such as environmentally sensitive viscoelasticity and selective permeability. In this work, we present different double hydrophilic star-shaped block copolymers with oppositely charged polyelectrolytes that can form electrostatically cross-linked gels. A new class of reversible double hydrophilic or amphiphilic networks can be synthesized based on these gels.

The four-armed copolymers consist of a PEG-core block extended with sulfonated polystyrene or N,N-dimethylaminopropyl acrylamide (DMAPAa). The sulfonated polystyrene block carries a permanent anionic charge whereas the DMAPAa block carries a permanent cationic or pH-tunable charge. The gel formation upon mixing these block copolymers was verified by shear rheology, which showed a high dependence of the gel strength on the presence of counterions. Coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations support the picture of well-gelated networks and give insight into the molecular conformations.
