We consider the four criteria recently proposed by one of us (JMG) for defining a thermoreversible gel and use them with syndiotactic polystyrene/solvent systems. We show that some of these systems, considered to be gels, do not obey these criteria. In addition, a simple mechanical test is presented which allows a thermoreversible gel to be recognized
