Syneresis of sodium oleate gels in organic solvents

Part III. Effect of temperature on the syneresis of sodium oleate gels in pinene
  • Mata Prasad

The syneresis of sodium oleate gels in pinene has been found to increase with a decrease in the temperature at which they are allowed to synerise. There does not seem to be any direct relation between syneresis and temperature. When the graphs of syneresis against temperature for each interval of time are extrapolated, all the graphs meet the temperature axis at a single point which agrees closely with the gelation temperature of the gel; this leads to the inference that no syneresis takes place at the gelation temperature which has been actually verified. An explanation has been advanced for the observed results.
