Preparation and Properties of Biocomposite Film with Gelatin and Poly(Vinyl Alcohol)
The mechanical properties, swelling, solubility, and optical properties of composite films with poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) and gelatin were studied. With increasing the PVA content in the composite films, the tensile strength (TS) and elongation at break (EB) of the films increase. The swelling and solubility are different with different gelatin/PVA ratios, with the lowest at 1:5.
