Improved mechanical properties of alkylamide organogels via a mixing enhancement effect

Author affiliations

Abstract

Mixtures of alkylamide derivatives with different alkyl chains were found to form organogels which exhibit thixotropic properties, while single alkylamide components formed organogels which did not exhibit such properties. With a three-component alkylamide system, the transparency and mechanical properties (toughness and stimulus-responsiveness) of the resulting organogels were enhanced. This mixing enhancement for organogelators may be due to the improved network density compared with that of the one-component systems.
