The properties of collagen films crosslinked by physical and chemical techniques were compared to the properties of films crosslinked with glutaraldehyde (GTA). Physical techniques studied include exposure to short wave (254 nm) u.v. irradiation and severe dehydration. Chemical techniques studied include immersion of collagen films in aqueous solutions of cyanamide or GTA. Collagen films exposed to combinations of aqueous solutions of cyanamide and severe dehydration had moduli of elasticity… CONTINUE READING
