In this study, alginate polymers are used to get homogeneous cylindrical or spherical gels. MRI techniques are employed to study homogeneity of these gels. Four different alginates are used and, for each one, five different concentrations for mechanical tests and three different concentrations for release tests are studied. Mechanical tests are performed to… CONTINUE READING
