Resumo: (2)H NMR experiments on a nonionic oriented lamellar phase demonstrate that shear flow induces structural defects in the lamellar structure. These substantial structural changes give rise to a transition from a viscous to a solidlike behavior; the elastic modulus of presheared samples was found to increase, reversibly, with the applied preshear rate. A similar behavior was found when step-cycling the temperature toward the layer-to-multilamellar-vesicle transition and back at constant shear rate. However, while shear rate controls the defect density, the temperature is found to control the defect rigidity. The lamellar phase exhibits a shear-thinning behavior under steady shear conditions, following the power law eta similar to gamma(n), with n approximate to -0.4. Both the shear thinning and the elastic behavior are in agreement with the available theoretical models. The observed shear-induced structural defects are reversible and can be regarded as a pretransition prior to the shear-induced formation of multilamellar vesicles.
