The effect of temperature on the viscosity for aluminum stearate/benzene gels either with or without benzoic acid has been investigated. The experimental results show that the McAllister's equation can be used to describe the relation between the viscosity and temperature for these gels. The viscosity of these gels increase with elevation of the temperature and the activation Gibbs functions of the viscous flow are negative, this behavior is contrary to that of the most liquids.
