Molecular and Supramolecular Structures at the Interfaces


Composites with different ratios of gelatin and silica are prepared. The water absorption of these materials from the gas and liquid phase and the water release from the composites under heating are studied. It is shown that the addition of silica decreases the water absorption of gelatin materials and makes it possible to control their rate of dissolution in aqueous media.
