Paper Abstract

Gel preparation technique is essential for crystallization in gel because the conditions in the crystallization environment depend on the type and properties of gel used for the experiment. Many substances introduced into the gelling mixture can change the time of gelation and the structure of the gel. In this work the time of gelation of tetramethoxysilan (TMS) gel was measured as a function of TMS and potassium dihydrogen phosphate (KDP) concentration in gelling mixture and temperature of gelation. Time of gelation increases with reducing TMS concentration and with augmentation of KDP concentration in gelling mixture. Decrease in temperature slows down the rate of gelling process.
