Therefore, our study indicates that this electro- management of wounds, and calcium cross-linked alginate fabrication method for the rapid and controlled preparation 2+ (Ca -Alg) is a commonly used hydrogel that is adapted for of alginate film could provide exciting opportunities for wound treatment. However, conventional methods for fab- wound treatment. More broadly, this study demonstrates the 2+ ricating Ca -Alg hydrogels can be tedious and difficult to potential of electrochemistry for the fabrication of high 2+ control because of the rapid Ca -induced gelation of performance polymeric materials. alginate.
