Shellac as a natural material to structure a liquid oil-based thermo reversible soft matter system

Author affiliations

Abstract

We demonstrate the novel use of shellac as a natural material to structure liquid oil into an oleogel. Thermo reversible oleogels with different texture, gel strength and temperature behaviour could be obtained by altering the concentration of shellac. Further, a possible application of shellac oleogel in the preparation of w/o spreadable emulsions is described.
