Rheology of Xanthan Gum: Salt, Temperature, and Strain Effects in Oscillatory and Steady Shear Experiments
Dynamic oscillatory shear testing has been used to study the rheology of xanthan gum in the moderate concentration regime (500 2000 ppm but decrease substantially at lower xanthan gum concentrations.Expand

Behavior of concentrated polystyrene solutions in large‐amplitude oscillating shear fields
The limits of linear viscoelastic behavior of polystyrene solutions have been investigated by subjecting them to large-amplitude oscillatory strains, γ0. At strains less than one we find that theExpand

Blends of cellulose ester/phenolic polymers – chemical and thermal properties of blends with polyvinyl phenol
A series of miscible cellulose ester/poly (vinyl phenol) (CE/PVP) blends containing a latent formaldehyde source were prepared. Due to the low molecular weight of the PVP, the maximum PVP content IDExpand
