Title: Release of Potassium Sorbate from Active Films of Sodium Alginate Crosslinked with Calcium Chloride
Author: Zactiti, EM

Abstract: The release of potassium sorbate from alginate films was evaluated considering different active agent concentrations in the film and three levels of alginate crosslinking. The mechanism involved in the diffusional process was investigated using the Power Law Model. The results indicated that potassium sorbate diffusion in alginate films has characteristics of Fickian and non-Fickian behaviour. Effective diffusion coefficients obtained using the solution in series derived from Fick's Second Law are close to values obtained by the short-time solution, indicating that the influence of swelling on effective diffusivity, although perceptible, is small, allowing the use of an average effective diffusivity. The values of effective diffusivity found indicate that alginate films have a potential use as systems for release of active substances. Copyright (C) 2009 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
