    Abstract: Based on matrine (Mat), chitosan (CS) and carboxymethyl chitosan (CMC) as a plant source drug and a carrier material. A novel Mat/CS drug-loading film and Mat/CS/CMC drug-loading film were prepared. The mechanical properties, surface morphology and drug-loading capacity of the drug-loading film were characterized in vitro. The results showed that t... Show More
