Solution structure and viscoelasticity of cellulose ethers in the presence of chaotropic nano-ions

, &
Cellulose ethers, such as hydroxypropyl cellulose (HPC) are widely-used commcercial viscosifying agents due to their high molecular stiffness, in comparison to classical synthetic polymers like PS , and their tendency to self-aggregate in solution. In this research project we study the effects of chaotropic (water structure-breaking) and hydrophobic nanometric ions on the solution structure and rheology of HPC. We observed that the chaotropic nano-ion induced stronger effects on HPC rheology - a drastic viscosity increase...
