it has been reported that agarose dissolved at 110C under slight over-pressure has a viscosity at least 10X smaller than dissolved at atmospheric pressure at 90C (ref:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ceramint.2004.06.007). I have not independently verified this result (but I plan to).
The context of this result is ceramic but the solution viscosity result is independent of this context. I see this result as quite interesting with many other applications BUT I cannot find ANY other reference of similar results with agarose gel or any other polysaccharide for that matter, which surprise me.
Do I miss something?
I am looking for references to better understand this result and the physico-chemistry behind it. If somebody could provide some pointers it will be greatly appreciated
