Abstract

© 2015 Russian Academy of Sciences and Turpion Ltd.The structures, phase behaviours and viscoelastic properties of solutions in which the growth of wormlike aggregates results in the reversible formation of a spatial network are considered. The general (independent of the molecular nature) regularities of equilibrium and dynamic characteristics of these solutions are considered and the mechanisms of manifestation of individual chemical portraits of particles are discussed. For solutions of wormlike micelles, the achievements of molecular thermodynamic theory are summarized. The potential applications of systems with controllable viscoelasticity are discussed.
