The dynamic mechanical property of gelatin gel was studied in the vicinity of the sol-gel transition point. It was found that the storage and the loss shear modulus G' and G'' exhibit a power-law dependence on the frequency f, G'∝G''∝fn, at the sol-gel transition point. The value of the rheological exponent n obtained here was 0.58±0.05.
