In this research, we synthesized a novel alginate-based composite hydrogel via graft copolymerization of mixtures of acrylic acid(AA) and acrylamide (AAm) onto alginate backbones in the presence clay powder. The composite hydrogel structures were confirmed by, SEM, TG,DTG and porosimeter. The rheological behavior of the prepared gels were measured by rheometer.
