LAOS Experiment of PAAc/Fe(III) Gels
Find the critical gel point
Gels from 5 wt% PAAc solution (Mv=51100): f=1.15e-3, 1.44e-3 (f=[Fe(III)]/[COOH])
Fig. 1 shows that the f=1.44e-3 sample underwent significant dissociation after LAOS, while Fig. 2 shows that the f-1.15e-3 sample has been less dissociated. Fig. 3 shows the frequency sweep of four samples: f=1.15e-3, 1.30e-3, 1.44e-3 and 1.73e-3.
Fig. 4 shows that sample f=1.30e-3 has the highest nonlinearity. Samples f=1.44e-3 and 1.15e-3 have comparable nonlinearity. Sample f=1.73e-3 is hardly nonlinear in the range of strain amplitude studied.
