Thin films based on chitosan, collagen, and glycosaminoglycans isolated from fish skin were obtained by solvent evaporation. The films were characterized by different analyses, e.g. surface free energy determination, swelling tests, roughness, mechanical and thermal measurements. Moreover, the degradation studies were carried out by the film treatment with… CONTINUE READING
