gelation temperature

Also contains definition of: gel temperature

Temperature threshold for the formation of a thermoreversible gel.
  1. A thermoreversible gel is usually formed by cooling a polymer solution. In these cases, the gel temperature is a maximum temperature at which the presence of network is observed.
  2. Since gel temperatures depend on the method of determination, this should always be indicated.
