Exploration of alginate hydrogel/nano zinc oxide composite bandages for infected wounds

Abstract

Alginate hydrogel/zinc oxide nanoparticles (nZnO) composite bandage was developed by freeze-dry method from the mixture of nZnO and alginate hydrogel. The developed composite bandage was porous with porosity at a range of 60%-70%. The swelling ratios of the bandages decreased with increasing concentrations of nZnO. The composite bandages with nZnO… (More)
