Associations leading to formation of reversible networks and gels

Other Article

One of the most important properties of associative polymers is their ability to form reversible networks and gels. The issue of whether or not the reversible gelation of associative polymers is a thermodynamic transition has not been settled yet. At the same time the understanding of different mechanisms governing the dynamics of associative polymers has been significantly advanced.
