Summary: Theoretical calculation study of two alternating conjugated polyelectrolytes, named SDPP-PPV and SDPP-PPE, constituted of 1,4-diketo-2,5-bis(4-sulfonylbutyl)-3,6-bis(4-bromophenyl) pyrrolo[3,4-c]pyrrole (SDPP) with 2,5-diethoxy-1,4-phenylenevinylene (DVB) or 2,5-diethoxy-1,4-phenyleneethynylene (DEB) were carried out with Gaussian 09 software.

The SEM image shows that a thin pore linen was coated with PDADMAC-PSS and the EDX spectrum shows an increase in the sulphur content (2.77-5.03%) of the fly ash upon coating with polyelectrolyte which might be due to the component of the polymer that has a polystyrene sulfonate compound (i.e., PSS) in its composition.

Dual flocculation (sequential addition of two chemicals) presents some advantages compared with single polymer flocculant, as higher overall level of aggregation, less sensitivity to variations of polyelectrolyte concentration, good sludge dewatering, superior retention, and shear-resistant flocs, and so forth.
