Preparation and Physical Properties of Cavernous Calcium Alginate Wound Dressings

Abstract:

Article Preview

As a natural polymer, alginic acid is widely used in medical fields for its biodegradability, low toxicity and immunogenicity. In this paper, four kinds of cavernous calcium alginate wound dressings were prepared, and physical properties were tested, providing fundamental basis for further study. The results indicate that glycerin is not suitable as a plasticizer for this cavernous wound dressing; a relatively uniform structure of the calcium alginate wound dressing would be obtained as the solution temperature increased; the mechanical properties decrease with the increase of the pre-freezing time.
