(a) Degradation assay in vitro for PVA/BaG/GA hybrids (A) noncrosslinked (0% GA); crosslinked with (B) 1.0% and (C) 5.0% GA; (D) crosslinked with 5.0% GA and treated with NH4OH. (b) Schematic drawing of the degradation behavior under in vitro assay for PVA/BaG/GA hybrids without crosslinking with surface erosion (SEM image). (c) Schematic drawing of the degradation behavior under in vitro assay for PVA/BaG/GA hybrids with 5.0% GA crosslinking with bulk erosion (SEM image). (d) SEM image of the degradation behavior for PVA/BaG/GA hybrids with 1.0% GA crosslinking.
