Macromolecular characteristics and morphology of water-soluble complexes between sodium poly(styrene sulfonate) (PSS) and tetradecyltrimethylammonium bromide have been followed as a function of surfactant-to-polymer charge ratio (S/P) to elicit possible changes in the complexation mechanism. As revealed by light scattering, shorter PSS (30 and 150 repeat units) yield multi-chain complexes while longer PSS (450 and 5000 repeat units) form single-chain species throughout 0<S/P<0.9. Irrespective of PSS chain length, the complexes exist in solution in a swollen coil conformation and undergo a compaction with S/P, but never collapse into a globule. Even when free PSS chain is too short to coil (30 repeat units), the complexes adopt a coiled conformation due to multi-chain aggregation. Morphological changes (manifested by a hypochromic shift in UV spectra of the complexes at S/P<0.5 and an increase in the local surfactant mobility observed at S/P>0.5 by ESR) strongly suggest a change in the formation mechanism of the complexes with a transition near S/P=0.5.
