Abstract:

This paper presents a manufacturing process for biological chitosan and chitosan-alginate dressing sponges as well as their biological and physical-mechanical properties. The aim of the research was the preparation of such sponges based on chitosan and chitosan-alginate fibrids prepared according to a method elaborated at Institute of Biopolymers and Chemical Fibres (IBWCh). The sponges ought to display physical (absorption ability) and biological features (cytotoxic and haemostatic properties) which would qualify the materials obtained for the healing of wounds throughout all healing phases.

Tags: chitosan, calcium alginate, microfibrids, freeze-drying, dressing sponges.
