Title: Rheological characterization of yield stress gels formed via electrostatic heteroaggregation of metal oxide nanoparticles

Abstract

Yield stress gels are formed when oppositely charged fumed nanoparticle species are dispersed in water. The gels are stable against sedimentation, have tunable rheological properties, and exhibit very little thixotropy.
