Gelation in Physically Associating Polymer Solutions
S K. Kumar, Jack F. Douglas
The thermally reversible gelation of a polymer solution is investigated. The dynamics slows down upon cooling in these systems much like glass-firming liquids. We show that no significant changes in the dynamics occurs near the geometrical percolation threshold and a separate transition is found where the solution viscosity diverges.
