Through semi-interpenetration of polymer networks with poloxamer, mechanical properties of chitosan (CS) sponge were increased for wound dressing application. Synthesis of poloxamer macromer was confirmed by proton nuclear magnetic resonance (1H NMR) spectra. Possible interactions between CS and poloxamer in semi-interpenetrating polymer networks (SIPNs), and changes in crystalline structures of both polymers were evaluated by Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and X-ray diffraction… CONTINUE READING
