Onset of mixing-induced thixotropy in hydrogels by mixing two homologues of low-molecular-weight hydrogelators

Author affiliations

Abstract

We determined the onset of thixotropy in hydrogels when two homologues of low-molecular-weight hydrogelators, N-alkyl-D-glucamides, were mixed. Intriguingly, the hydrogels generated from the individual components did not show such behaviour. The mixing induced onset of thixotropy might be attributed to the improved network quality.
