LEON, Kety y SANTIAGO, Julio. Antimicrobial properties of chitosan-poly (vinyl alcohol) films containing dragon blood extract. Rev. Soc. Quím. Perú [online]. 2007, vol.73, n.3, pp. 158-165. ISSN 1810-634X.
Hydro alcoholic, alcoholic and aqueous Dragon's blood (Croton lechleri) extracts were introduced in gamma irradiated chitosan-poly (vinyl alcohol) films and their antimicrobial properties against Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli y Pseudomonas aeruginosa have been evaluated. These films as well as the latex exhibit activity against S. aureus only and have potential application as wound healing material.
