On Wednesday, April 19th, 2017, a scientific seminar about Biocompatible hydrogels used for skin dressing was presented by Mr. Alan Ahmed (Assistant Lecturer at MLS Department / KUST).

During the seminar, studies on ionic crosslinking of alginate by CaCO3, CaSO4 and CaCl2 cross-linkers was presented along with their physical properties analysis by the mechanical compressing test as well as degradation study of the hydrogel. Degradation profile of covalently cross-linked alginate, which allows compression, was presented as well.
