Swelling and mechanical properties of biopolymer hydrogels containing chitosan and bovine serum albumin.

Abstract

Experimental and theoretical investigations of the swelling and mechanical properties of hydrogels formed from chitosan, bovine serum albumin (BSA), and chitosan/BSA mixtures cross-linked with genipin were performed. The properties of cross-linked chitosan hydrogels were explained in terms of its polyelectrolyte behavior, which led to a gradual increase in… (More)
