The Mayonnaise Effect explained by Lisa Zyga on phys.org

Post has attachment
My new paper “The Mayonnaise Effect” (http://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acs.jpclett.7b03207) is showing nonlinear concentration-dependent viscosity solutions is due to jamming transition at a critical concentration. Applies to ionic liquids, deep eutectic solvents, near critical points, and mayonnaise... If you'd like a simple summary, see http://www.chem.gla.ac.uk/wynne/research/2017-mayonnaise.html.

Long-standing controversy over the liquid-liquid transition in super-cooled n-butanol solved. Turns out that the new phase is a liquid crystal but one that is not simply in-between the liquid and the crystal. This leads to unusual properties not normally seen in liquid crystals. This result has implications for understanding super-cooling and glass formation in general.
