Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A series of model derivatized guar polymer samples were crosslinked with three different metal ion crosslinkers in order to better understand the complex chemical reactions involved in producing fracturing fluid gels. The gels were studied using steady shear viscosity and dynamic oscillatory measurements. An explanation of the mechanism involved in titanate crosslinking is offered from evidence gathered from NMR and dynamic light scattering experiments.
