Abstract
In this research work, gelatin-carboxymethylchitosan (CMC) based biodegradable composites films were prepared by solution casting method. Chitosan from waste prawn shell was the basic raw materials of CMC synthesis. Five sets of CMC-gelatin composites (5-25 wt% CMC) along-with pure gelatin were prepared in solution casting method. Incorporation of CMC into gelatin significantly altered some of the properties. The CMC and gelatin-CMC composites formation was confirmed by Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). Surface morphology of the films was investigated by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and SEM micrograph revealed that composites were porous and CMC was homogenously dispersed into gelatin. The porous surface of the composites is one of the criterions for new cells growth. Thermal stability of composites were investigated by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and composites more thermal stable (less weight loss) than pure gelatin. Antimicrobial and cytotoxicity tests found all composites were performed microbial safe and no cytotoxic effect. The physico-chemical analyses and others analyses of scaffolds revealed for their application as a wound dressing material or artificial skin.
