Chitosan-alginate polyelectrolyte complex (CS-AL PEC) is water insoluble and more effective in limiting the release of encapsulated materials compared to chitosan or alginate. Coherent CS-AL PEC films have been prepared in our laboratory by casting and drying suspensions of chitosan-alginate coacervates. The objective of this study was to evaluate the properties of the CS-AL PEC films prepared with chitosans of different molecular weights. Films prepared with low-molecular-weight chitosan (Mv 1… CONTINUE READING
