Fig nbsp xA Effect of Laponite
The Reline molecules will gradually go back to its pure state configuration and consequently, a gradual increase in the mobility of the Reline molecules will be enhanced resulting in higher DES fluidity and hence a corresponding decrease in viscosity. This is also validated by the corresponding increase in the mixture melting point.
3.2.2. Effect of temperature
The influence of temperature on the flow behavior of 1000 ppm of Laponite in Reline was investigated by measuring the apparent viscosity at 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 and 80 °C.
