Mixing induced thixotropy of a two-component system of alkylurea organogelators having different alkyl chains

Author affiliations

Abstract

Mixing induced thixotropy was demonstrated on a two-component system of alkylurea with different alkyl chains known as low-molecular-weight organogelators. Individually, the component gels did not show thixotropic behavior. The improved network structure obtained by mixing might enable enhanced toughness and stimulus-responsiveness of mixed gels.
