Abstract

Bio polymers such as proteins and polysaccharides have a variety of applications in various fields including agriculture, biomedical and food industry. Blending of polymers is one of the simplest and cheapest way to enhance the properties of polymers. A polymeric blend of sodium alginate (SA) and gelatin display a unique pH responsive behavior which attracts them for their use in various fields. However, high water solubility and poor mechanical strength are the two main drawbacks of bio materials prepared from them.
