Abstract

It is well known that in dilute solutions linear polymers tend to form aggregates, whilst in concentrated solutions gels are formed, if the temperatures of the systems are chosen appropriately. Although, in some cases, it may be difficult to distinguish a liquid (sol) from a solid (gel), Hermans attempted to define a gel as a coherent system of at least two compounds, which exhibits mechanical properties characteristic of a solid, where both the dispersed component and the dispersion medium extend themselves continuously through the whole system1.
