In addition to the dental applications, alginates
are widely used in textile printing, food industry, pharmaceutical applications, paper industry, etc.
Lead researcher Morten Georg Jensen, of the University of Copenhagen, has studied the effect of taking alginate
doses over three years.
This refined alginate
could do wonders for troops bogged down with batteries, replacements and chargers needed to operate electronic gear on the battlefield.
DuPont offered to divest its global alginates
business, including all tangible and intangible assets for the sourcing, development, manufacturing, packaging or sale of alginates
Despite these advantages, certain drawbacks of this irreversible hydrocolloid have led to efforts to improve the properties of conventional alginates
The present study was designed to improve the parent strain of Azotobacter vinelandii NRRL-14641 for hyper-production of alginate
by random mutagenesis.
dressings are best suited for pressure and diabetic foot ulcers and venous leg ulcers, post-operative wounds, cavity wounds, traumatic wounds, malignant wounds, pilonidal sinus wounds, partial thickness burns, graft donor sites, and abrasions.
Summary: Urease enzyme was extracted from Apergillus fumigatus and immobilized in calcium alginate
In this context and from the point of using natural and renewable raw materials, alginates
are used as a biosorbent for metal ions.
as a useful natural polymer for microencapsulation and therapeutic applications.
Other studies demonstrated marked reduction in symptom severity scores and gastroesophageal reflux with alginates
compared to the reflux medication Propulsid[R] (cisapride) (21) and to the acid blocker Prilosec[R] (omeprazole).
2002) demonstrated benefits of alginates
to immobilize plant growth promoting bacteria (PGPB) and its benefits to agriculture, highlighting it as one the most compatible polymers with this bacteria, with the ability to protect them against adverse environmental conditions (Yabur et al.
are linear polymers comprising residues of [alpha]-L-guluronic (G) and [beta]-D-mannuronic (M) present in variable proportions and sequences in the cell wall and intercellular space of brown algae.
Immobilization can be achieved by entrapping the cells within the matrix formed by gels made from alginates
, carrageenans, and polyacrylamide materials.
, cellulose derivatives, carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), and various gums are widely used abroad.
