Polymer composed of positively charged macromolecules and an equivalent amount of counter-anions.
Notes:
  1. If a substantial fraction of constitutional units carries positive charges, then a cationic polymer is a @[email protected]
  2. The positive charges may be fixed on groups located in main chains as in an @[email protected] or in pendant groups.
  3. The term cationic polymer should not be used to denote a polymer prepared by @[email protected]
