AbstractSolvation structure and gelation ability of novel oligomeric electrolyte poly(pyridinium-1,4-diyliminocarbonyl-1,4-phenylenemethylene chloride) (1·Cl) as well as its derivatives 1·X obtained by counterion substitution: X - = BF 4 -, PF 6 -, TFSA -, I -, SCN -, DCA -, ClO 4 -, SO 3CF 3 - have been studied by quantum chemistry methods and integral equation theory of molecular liquids. The interaction energy, ΔEtot, between the counterions and polymer chains has been estimated in the frame of density functional theory and COSMO model. The calculations show that ΔEtot for gel forming polyelectrolytes has rather high values. For cases when gel formation is not observed experimentally, calculated ΔEtot have generally lower values. The excess chemical potential of ions (xμion) in water, methanol, dimethylsulfoxide and acetonitrile at infinite dilution has been estimated by means of the integral equation theory of molecular liquids, 1D-RISM-KH. According to the xμion values obtained, the higher gelation ability is observed for 1·X in which counterions X - have the higher absolute values of the solvation free energies. The threedimensional solvation structure of 1·Cl in aqueous solution has been analyzed by means of 3D-RISM-KH approach. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
