Miscibility and Liquid Crystallinity Studies of Chitosan/Ethylcellulose Blends

Abstract:

Article Preview

The miscibility of chitosan/ethylcellulose (CH/EC) blends was studied by FT IR, wide-angle X-ray diffraction (WAXD), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and scanning electronic microscopy (SEM). The regular changes of FT IR and WAXD spectra of CH/EC blend powder indicated the miscibility of the blends. DSC curves and SEM images of cross-sections of the blends films showed partly miscibility. CH/EC blends could form anisotropic phase in their formic acid solutions observed on a polarizing light microscope (PLM).
