We report direct measurements of ionic strength-dependent interactions between different molecular weights of zwitterionic triblock copolymers adsorbed to hydrophobic colloids and surfaces. The zwitterionic copolymers investigated include phosphorylcholine [poly(2-methacryloyloxyethyl phosphorylcholine) (PMPC)] and sulfopropylbetaine [poly(3-( N-2-methacryloyloxyethyl- N, N-dimethyl)ammonatopropanesulfonate) (PMAPS)] end blocks
