    • Abstract


      The present study describes preparation and characterization of fibrin–chitosan–sodium alginate composite (F–C–SA) in sheet form. F–C–SA composite was prepared and characterized for its physicochemical properties like water absorption capacity, surface morphology, FTIR spectra and mechanical properties. The optimum quantities of fibrin, chitosan and sodium alginate to get better mechanical properties to composite were determined. FTIR spectrum confirmed the interaction between amino groups of chitosan, fibrin and sodium alginate and SEM studies revealed composite nature of the material.
