Thermoreversible Gelation of Polymers and Biopolymers
This work deals with the new area of polymer science, thermoreversible gelation. Adopting a multi-disciplinary approach, the book tackles gel formation, thermal behaviour and phase diagrams; gel morphology and gelation mechanism; and mechanical properties. Polymers and biopolymers are treated separately. Extensive coverage of experimental results from electrical and optical microscopy, light scattering and new diffraction techniques is provided.
