Abstract:

The chemical composition of a dispersion medium affected the structure and properties of the greases not only by its viscosity, but also by its dissolution of the thickening soap and or its promotion of swelling or disperison of the soap. Lithium stearate had a lower thickening effect in isoparaffinic oil than in medicinal oil as dispersion medium. The interaction of the basic oil and soap was lower in oils with high paraffinic structures. Author
