Hi Everyone,

I have to do a paper as to why L&P soak off and Gel doesnt. I know it is to do with the chemical structure, That L&P is mixed as when required, due to the chemicle structure. As in the polymers and monomers are seperate until mixed which then starts the process of polymerisation. And that gel has aqlready been mixed in a way that means it has already partly polymerized. Hope i am explaining this properly and correctly.

What i want to know is 'why does this effect the way they can be removed'.

Please help, i am studying and researching but i cant find an answer to that question. I am sure the fact that i am understanding the basic chemical structures of each system and what it means will be ok. But i really want to know "Why it effects them differently in regards to removing them"?

Thanks in advance for any help on this matter. XXX

One main reason is that L&p is porous and most gels are not,
