Alginate/carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) hydrogel films using glutaraldehyde (GA) and/or copper sulfate (Cu2+) as crosslinking agents were prepared. The ratios of alginate to CMC were varied at 0:10, 2:8, 4:6, 6:4, 8:2 and 10:0 in the presence of GA at 0, 2, 5% and/or copper sulfate of 0 and 0.02 mol. The Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) spectra of hydrogels indicated the intermolecular interaction between CMC with GA and alginate with Cu2+. Using a couple of GA and Cu2+, as crosslinking agents, the hydrogels exhibited better swelling time than that of a crosslinking agent alone. The percentages of solid remains were increased by increasing both of alginate ratio and Cu2+ content.
