The sol-gel transition of organic gels prepared by polycondensation of resorcinol (R) with formaldehyde (F) in presence of sodium carbonate (C) was monitored by small amplitude oscillatory measurements, at a single frequency. The gelation time (t(g)) was determined from the evolution of the storage (G) and loss (G") moduli versus time. The influence of two synthesis variables, the resorcinol/sodium carbonate ratio (R/C) and the synthesis temperature (7), was investigated. The gelation time was found to decrease with increasing synthesis temperature and decreasing R/C ratio. The apparent activation energy of the reactional system leading to the gelation, calculated from the gelation times obtained between 50 and 90 degrees C, was found to be close to 80 kJ mol(-1) and independent of the R/C ratio.

Resorcinol-formaldehyde hydrogels prepared at various resorcinol/sodium carbonate ratios, R/C, were convectively air dried. The influence of the drying operating conditions, i.e. air temperature and velocity, on the pore texture, shrinkage and cracking of the dried gels were investigated. Shrinkage was found to be isotropic. The shrinkage behaviour and the textural properties of the gels are independent of the drying operating conditions, but are completely determined by the value of the synthesis variables. The analysis of the drying kinetics shows two main drying periods. During the first phase, shrinkage occurs and the external surface of the material remains completely wet: heat and mass transfers are limited by external resistances located in a boundary layer. When shrinkage stops, the second period begins: the evaporation front recedes inside the solid and internal transfer limitations prevail. The drying time can be reduced by increasing the air temperature and/or velocity, but the temperature increase is limited when monolithicity is required, especially when the pores are small. For example, at a temperature of 160 degrees C and a velocity of 2 m/s, about 1 h is needed to dry a 2.8 cm in diameter and 1 cm in height cylinder containing macropores (pore width > 50 nm after drying). The same cylinder presenting small mesopores (pore width = 10-15 nm after drying) requires 20 h at 30 degrees C and 2 m/s to reach complete dryness without the development of cracks.
