Polyelectrolyte Complex Composed of Chitosan and Sodium Alginate for Wound Healing

Moharana, Aasis (2015) Polyelectrolyte Complex Composed of Chitosan and Sodium Alginate for Wound Healing. MTech thesis.



Wound healing occurs naturally by the body mechanism action. The blood initially clots and the healing procedure starts. A kind of gel is developed which would speed up the process. The gel is made up of chitosan and sodium alginate. This biocompatible gel would provide wet environment and a forms a coating on the wounded area due to which it will refrain from bacterial action and protects the wound from infection. Here we analysed different concentration of sodium alginate and chitosan followed by its characterisation techniques using scanning electron microscope and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, viscosity and tensile measurement of the gel. Which shows the comparable results than other Haemostatic gel reported so far. Finally a dynamic syringe is developed which is used to produce a homogeneous mixture of chitosan and alginate solution which would successfully help in wound healing process. The basic aim of this study is to optimize the time of formation of the gel.
