Rheological properties of the interfacial layers of gelatins chemically modified with N-hydroxysuccinimide ester of caprylic acid (the degree of modification is 10, 30, and 85%) are studied. Interfacial layers are spontaneously formed at the aqueous gelatin solution-toluene interface. Rheological characteristics (yield strength, modulus of elastic deformation, Schwedoff and Bingham viscosities) increase in proportion to the degree of modification (hydrophobization) of gelatin.
