Development of a New Injectable PVA–Ag NPs/ Chitosan Hydrogel for Wound Dressing Application
In the present time, functional and cost effective of artificial skin is an interested in study. For this aim, herein, we developed a new injectable polyvinyl alcohol-silver nanoparticles/chitosan (PVA-AgNPs/CS) hydrogel for wound dressing skin applications. Thus, silver (Ag) is an antibiotic agent, was loaded inside of hydrogel and its mechanical property, biodegradable, swelling property have been investigated. Results were showed the good flexible ability, good antibiotic, suitable the biogradable rate and swelling rate, and high mechanical property. The PVA - Ag NPs/ CS hydrogels could be used for the wound dressing skin treatment in the near future.
