A new composite thixotropic hydrogel composed of a low-molecular-weight hydrogelator and a nanosheet

Author affiliations

Abstract

A two-component composite comprised of a low-molecular-weight hydrogelator and the nanosheet Laponite®, a synthetic layered silicate, showed thixotropic behaviour, whereas each single component did not show thixotropic behaviour at the same concentration. This mixing enhancement effect may be attributed to the improved quality of the gel network.
