Abstract

We have studied the B-Z transition of poly[d(G-C)] in the presence of alkali metal, tetramethylammonium and tetraethylammonium chlorides at room temperature. The measured critical salt concentrations increase in the order Na, K, Rb, TMA, Cs and are in good agreement with the theoretical values predicted from a statistical-mechanical treatment of the transition. © 1987.
