Polymer gels versus low molecular weight gelators[edit]

Many of the definitions on this web page are specific to polymer gels. For example, cross links are not a requirement for low molecular weight gelators. Does anyone have have thoughts on this? I think that the page should be renamed or expanded to include LMWGs.Klsyking (talk) 02:31, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

About gel and baldness[edit]

There should be mention in this article about one of the possible effects of using gel regularly, which is the thinning of hair and possibly baldness. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 222.127.47.40 (talk) 10:08, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Why is the sound induced gel section included? It includes too many specific details in contrast to the rest of the article, and it does not seem to have many citations. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 142.150.227.231 (talk) 19:43, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Gels versus water[edit]

I have found a herbal substance that works in water but not in gels or lotions. The lotions we have tried are lanoline, silicone oil, petroleum,and other gels which sometimes contain 7% water. What is the difference? How can something work in one but not the other.

Thanks,

Crystal Soil - Water Pearls[edit]

I think this should be added in the uses of Hydrogel: http://www.crystalsoil.com (the website is only an example, there are many producer for this product. --77.186.131.47 (talk) 11:51, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Continuous/discontinuous phase - mistake?[edit]

According to the last sentence in the lead, …the solid is the discontinuous phase and the liquid is the continuous phase. This contradicts the the table in Colloid#Classification_of_colloids, which says that for a gel the solid is the continuous and the liquid is dispersed. I checked in my chemistry textbook agrees with the Colloid article. MYCETEAE - talk 07:41, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

I agree. That needed to be fixed, so I did. Devil Master (talk) 12:51, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
Actually they might both be continuous! -Johannes 13.7.2011 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.248.102.76 (talk) 18:11, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Hard gels?[edit]

I asked at Talk:Silica_gel#Gel.3F, but maybe this is a better place. By what definition is silica gel a gel? —Ben FrantzDale (talk) 13:33, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
