Abstract

A thermally reversible gel is formed form the wormlike and helical poly(n-hexylisocyanate) (PHIC) in hydrocarbon solvents and chiral optical and ultraviolet spectroscopic changes associated with the aggregation events leading to the gelation. These spectroscopic changes together with the nature of the chain conformation demonstrate the development of an aggregate which reduces the number of kinked helix reversals in the chains.
