Pages: 503-508


Results are presented concerning the studies on the physicochemical properties of a bacterial cellulose film, obtained by culturing the symbiotic acetic-acid bacteria Acetobacter xylinum and the yeast of genus Brettanomyces, Zygosaccharomyces, Saccharomyces. A block diagram is presented for the production and purification of the cellulose from impurities. High consumer properties of bacterial cellulose are demonstrated. Sorption properties were determined with respect to ε-aminocaproic acid and sea buckthorn oil. Prospects were estimated concerning the application of bacterial cellulose gel films in order to create transdermal therapeutic systems.
