Preparation and Characterization of Mulbery Silk Fibroin Films

R Somashekar

The silk films were prepared by dissolving degummed Bombyx mori raw silk fibers in LiBr salt solution using double distilled water as a solvent and subjecting the solution to dialysis using cellulose tube. These films may be of some use in treating burn injuries. We have characterized these films using X-rays and other physical methods to obtain information about the structure-property relation. We have also compared the parameters of silk films with that of silk fibers.
