Synthesis and characterization of a hybrid (chitosan-g-glycidyl methacrylate)-xanthan hydrogel.


This work reports the synthesis and characterization of a new material obtained by mixing the hybrid natural-synthetic chitosan-g-glycidyl methacrylate (CTS-g-GMA) biopolymer and xanthan gum (X). All materials were characterized by infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray diffraction, and thermal analysis (DSC and TGA) and the results were contrasted with those… (More)
