Table 2 shows the quantitative values of the ionic interaction factor [Q.sup.tb.sub.Cr mix] / [Q.sup.tb.sub.Cr o] and the dynamic selectivity provided by [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII].
Results on binding energy calculations based on bioinformatics tool for the cross-linking of AA with chitosan and type-I collagen using Auto Dock software proved that chitosan and type-I collagen can cross-link with azelaic acid not only with ionic interaction but also through multiple intermolecular hydrogen bonding.
The illustration is a theoretical depiction of a polymer segment composition showing how co-monomer selection and molecular weight control optimize ionic interactions, which result in specific setting and film formation properties.
The ionic interactions caused by the brine composition and surface charged behaviour of rock substrates have been identified as another main mechanism that can affect wetting and contact angles in solid-liquid-liquid systems.
Infrared spectroscopic studies reveal the occurrence of intermolecular ionic interaction between the neat ionomers in the blend.
The lights emit ultraviolet and X rays, and also glow green, purple and red based on ionic interactions. The massively powerful magnetic field of Jupiter (only about 20,000 times that of Earth) even attracts ions spewed out by Jupiter's volcanic satellite, Io, which impact the lights too.
Two significant mechanisms are dependable for dielectric heating in foodstuff, dipole-dipole interactions and ionic interactions [5].

Separation is achieved by utilizing differences in ionic interactions between the cation exchange group on the column resin surface and the various hemoglobins and hemoglobin components.
In general, interaction strength varies as follows: Van der Waals < dipole-dipole < hydrogen bonding < ionic interactions. The strength of ionic interactions has been shown to greatly influence the viscoelastic properties of polymers.
Attention is paid to the influence of polarity of polyurethane chemical structures, dispersion interactions, hydrogen bonding, and ionic interactions on the values of free surface energy of polar polyurethane ionomers.
This suggests that the lytic agent might initially bind the lipid bilayer through ionic interactions.
The mechanism of binding of [PrP.sup.res] to the Seprion ligands is unclear at this stage because information is currently not available on the detailed structure of the protein aggregates, although the optimal ligands were found to be of high molecular mass (>50 000 Da), presumably facilitating multiple ionic interactions with the aggregated protein structure (which would be expected to have multiple repeating regions of positive or negative charge).
