This paper provides an extension of a procedure for calculating counterion binding ratios in a polyelectrolyte solution based on the Poisson-Boltzmann formulation of territorial counterion binding to include the presence of excess salt of the counterion. It is an extension of an earlier version which dealt with two counterions with different charge numbers without excess salt. The relative binding parameter of sodium to poly(galacturonic acid) as a function of the degree of neutralization in the presence of excess sodium chloride is determined by 23Na n.m.r, and compared with the numerical results from the Poisson-Boltzmann and the Manning condensation theories. Agreement is found with the Poisson-Boltzmann results at degrees of neutralization greater than the critical condensation point predicted by the Manning theory. Qualitative elements of both theories appear in the experimental results.
