It has versatile application owing of its inherent properties.
Radiation; Cross-linking; Polymer; Polyvinyl alcohol; Mechanical Polymer science and technology is one of the most active and promising fields in embracing a multitude of topics from natural polymers such as cellulose, wool, silk, jute etc.
which are of utmost importance for living systems, to the synthetic high polymers [1,2].
By casting process Gelatin-based polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) films were prepared in different ratios.
These films were irradiated under gamma radiation (60Co) at different doses (0.5-5 k Gy).
Bone glues may contain as much as 6% of these materials.
These impurities are of little or no importance in the majority of glue uses.
Gelatin was one of the first macromolecules employed in the production of biomaterials .
This biopolymer still attracts the attention of researchers because it is produced abundantly practically worldwide, has a relatively low cost and possesses excellent functional and filmogenic properties [3,4].
Various physico-mechanical and morphological properties like tensile strength (TS), elongation at break (Eb), FTIR, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) of films were observed.
