Polyelectrolytes are macromolecules containing electrically charged monomer units . Ionization is normally a result of dissociation of electrically neutral onomer unit i n t o charged unit and counterion. Therefore, counterions re always present in polyelectrolyte systems, and the number of charged monomer links is equal to the number of counterions.
