This review summarizes recent work in the field of polyelectrolyte stars and cylindrical brushes. Synthesis of anionic and cationic polyelectrolyte stars and cylindrical brushes by different synthetic strategies is introduced. Solution properties such as titration, osmotic pressure, and inter-polyelectrolyte complexes (IPECs) of the stars and brushes are briefly discussed. We also highlight the use of core-shell polyelectrolyte brushes as the template for the preparation of superparamagnetic hybrid cylinders.
