Abstract
The relationships between pour point, gelation temperature, borderline pump ing temperature, mean molecular weight (M) and CH2/CH3 ratio of some base o ils are illustrated in this paper. Data for these base oils indicate that: gelation temperature and borderline pumping temperature show linear relatio nships with pour point; gelation temperature and pour point decrease with C H2/CH3; borderline pumping temperatures show linear relations with CH2/CH3 and MX (CH2/CH3).
