LAOS Experiment of PAAc/Fe(III) Gels
Find the critical gel point
Gels from 5 wt% PAAc solution (Mv=51100): f=1.15e-3, 2.88e-3 (f=[Fe(III)]/[COOH])
Frequency sweep of the two samples (Fig. 1) indicate that the critical gel point fgel lies between the f values of the two samples.
For both samples, significant signals of the 3rd harmonic were not detected under the strain range swept (50%~700%). Higher strains were not applied.
