Abstract: A series of novel cross-linkers, N-hydroxysuccinimide (NHS)-activated end-bit binary acid (NHS- C4, C5, C6, C8, C10, C14), were synthesised to modify gelatin films and the crosslinking effects were compared. Homogeneous films with the exception of the film crosslinked by NHS-C14 were observed and the thickness was measured using a scanning electron microscope. The section feature influenced by different film-treatment conditions was also recorded. The differential scanning calorimetry results indicated higher thermal stability. The water contact angles confirmed enhanced hydrophobicity. NHS-C6, which was used as a probe crosslinker, exhibited the best crosslinking effect that the content of the free -NH2 achieved was the lowest out of all the crosslinkers. The biodegradation results of gelatin films modified by NHS-C6 exhibited better degradation-resistance and excellent stability. In addition, the optimal experimental conditions were 45°C for 12 h when [NHS-C6]/[-NH2] = 2.5.

Keywords: gelatin – crosslinking – NHS-Cn – hydrophobicity – homogeneity film
