Abstract:

Diffusion and sorption of Biodegradable blends of sodium alginate (SA) and lignosulphonic acid (LS) has been studied at room temperature by conventional weight gain experiments. The sorption studies of SA/LS blends are carried in pH medium of 7.4. The sorption data are used to evaluate the mass transfer coefficients such as intrinsic diffusion coefficient and permeation coefficient. It was observed that the blends follow Fickian mode of transport where polymer chain relaxation is more than diffusion of solvent.
