The purpose of this work was to determine, as a function of pH, the viscosity of gelatin solutions containing various monovalent anions. The sequence of these anions in their ability to depress viscosity, that is, the Hofmeister or Lyotropic series of anions, will be validated for the following salts: Sodium bromide, sodium iodate, sodium formate, sodium chloride and sodium nitrate.
