cationic polymer
Polymer composed of positively charged macromolecules and an equivalent amount of counter-anions.
  1. If a substantial fraction of constitutional units carries positive charges, then a cationic polymer is a @P04728@.
  2. The positive charges may be fixed on groups located in main chains as in an @IT07210@ or in pendant groups.
  3. The term cationic polymer should not be used to denote a polymer prepared by @C00910@.
