In this paper the diffusion behaviour of water in scleroglucan gels is investigated by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). In particular, enhanced diffusion is observed in scleroglucan/borax gels. This behaviour becomes anisotropic upon scleroglucan/borax compression, with a preservation of the anomalous diffusion along the compression direction and the disappearance of the phenomenon along the perpendicular direction. Enhanced diffusion is interpreted in the framework of a solvent mediated diffusion model. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2011.
