Unformatted text preview: but more viscous than original solution. Similar to cough syrup. Became most viscous. Similar in viscosity to crumpled gelatin Conclusion: It was concluded that cross-linking increases the viscosity of the polymer solution, and it is proportional to the extent of cross-linking. It was determined that breaking the cross-linking by adding sulfuric acid does not restore the viscosity of the non-cross linked solution. It was also determined that neutralizing the acid does not completely restore the viscosity of the cross-linked solution....
