Abstract: It is investigated that the association of linear cationic model polyelectrolytes with oppositely charged pyrenetetrasulfonate (PY) in aqueous solution. For this purpose water soluble ionenes were prepared via Menschutkin reaction from 1-4-diazabicyclo [2.2.2] octane and e.g. 1,6-dibromohexane and 1,4 dibromotransbuten. The complex formation between dye molecules PY and oppositely charged ionenes (PD4, PD6, PD4-2 and PD4coPD6) of different chemical structures in aqueous solution was studied by light scattering (LS), small angle neutron scattering (SANS), UV-Vis, fluorescence spectroscopy and atomic force microscopy (AFM). Spectrophotometric titration results revealed that PY molecules were bind to ionenes cooperative process due to π-π interaction. Cooperative binding constant KD was determined as 6.4 x 10^6 M^-1 (+ or - 10^5 M^-1). It was found that binding mode and geometry of PY is predominantly depending on inter-charge distances of corresponding ionenes. Resultant complexes have exhibited size and structure variation as a function of charge ratio (L), ionic strength, inter-charge distances. Spherical dye-ionene complexes of which radius of gyration ranging between (RG) 50 and 190 nm have been observed in PD4-PY system while this was not possible with a different ionene (PD6) or either case ionene excess. It was found that most of the PD4-PY complexes had RG / RH ~ 0.78. Based on the AFM and LS results, spherical complexes have certain colloidal stability and their size can effectively controlled by changing the L.
