Surfactant and Metal Ion Effects on the Mechanical Properties of Alginate Hydrogels
(Elsevier Science Bv, 2016)
This paper addresses the controlled variation of the mechanical properties of alginate gel beads by changing the alginate concentration or by adding different surfactants or cross-linking cations. Alginate beads containing ...
Monitoring the gelation of polyacrylamide-sodium alginate composite by fluorescence technique
(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2012)
Polyacrylamide (PAAm)-sodium alginate (SA) composite was prepared with different amounts of SA varying in the range between 0.06% and 2% (w/v). The PAAm-SA composite was characterized by the steady-state fluorescence ...
Gelation of PAAm-PVP composites: A fluorescence study
(World Scientific, 2014)
Hybrid hydrogels are a new class of composite materials. Polyacrylamide (PAAm) hydrogels are mainly produced by free radical crosslinking copolymerization (FCC) of AAm in the presence of N N'-methylene bis (acrylamide) ...
Cation Effect on Slow Release from Alginate Beads: A Fluorescence Study
(Springer/Plenum Publishers, 2014)
In this study spherical alginate beads containing pyranine (P-y) as a fluorescence probe were prepared by ionotropic gelation of a sodium alginate solution. The steady state fluorescence technique was used to study pyranine ...
Effect of Calcium Ion Concentration on Small Molecule Desorption from Alginate Beads
(Taylor & Francis Inc, 2014)
Spherical alginate beads were prepared by ionotropic gelation of sodium alginate through the use of calcium ions. Pyranine (Py) was added to the alginate solution as a small molecule probe for fluorescence studies. Desorption ...
