Résumé

La densité du sulfate de chondroitine-protéine en solution aqueuse a été déterminée par la méthode du «falling drop» utilisant des colonnes de xylène : bromobenzène. Un comportement Newtonien fut observé à des concentrations de 25 mg/ml. A des concentrations plus élevées (au niveau physiologique), les polysaccharides se comportent comme des liquides visco-élastiques, probablement à cause de l'enchevêtrement des différentes chaînes polymères.
