The addition of lecithin and CaCl mixtures (< 5wt%) to mineral oils induced the gelation of the Organogel mineral oils by controlling the molar ratio of lecithin and CaCl . The formation of the gels is believed to reﬂect Rheology the entanglement of reverse cylindrical micelles created by interactions between the lecithin and CaCl . The Surfactant rheological properties of the gels were studied by analyzing dynamic and steady rheology data, and FTIR techniques were used to clarify the interactions between the headgroups of lecithin and CaCl . In addition, we showed that mineral oil gels were readily ungelled (liqueﬁed) by the addition of an ungelling agent, such as a small amount of ethanol, or by heating. 1. Introduction
