gelation temperature

Also contains definition of: gel temperature
Temperature threshold for the formation of a @TT07531@.
  1. A @TT07531@ is usually formed by cooling a polymer solution. In these cases, the gel temperature is a maximum temperature at which the presence of @NT07562@ is observed.
  2. Since @G02600@ temperatures depend on the method of determination, this should always be indicated.
