Abstract Polyelectrolyte complex (PEC) dispersions formed by fast ionic exchange reaction between polyelectrolytes (PELs) bearing oppositely charged groups have been characterized by turbidity and dynamic light scattering. The stability of the formed PEC dispersions, the average hydrodynamic particle size d<SUB>h</SUB> and the also determined polydispersity index PI of the PEC particles were of special interest. In this study poly(diallyldimethylammonium chloride) (PD) of different molar mass is used in combination with copolymers of maleic acid and <IMGSRC="/giflibrary/12/agr.gif"BORDER="0">-methylstyrene (P(MS-<IMGSRC="/giflibrary/12/agr.gif"BORDER="0">MeSty)) as well as propene (P(MS-P)), with a copolymer of acrylamide and sodium acrylate (PR2540<SUP>UD</SUP>) and poly(styrene-p-sodium sulfonate) (NaPSS).
