Two types of films consisting of sodium salt of carboxymethyl cellulose (NaCMC) and hydroxypropyl cellulose (HPC) as film
forming materials and glycerin as plasticizer were prepared, characterized and their water vapour sorption properties were
The water sorption isotherms of the films were measured using a magnetic suspension balance. Results show that diffusion of
water vapour in NaCMC based film is faster than that in HPC based films, due to the heterogeneous structure and larger pore
dimensions of the NaCMC films.
