Paper Abstract

We have measured differential spectra of water in thin films of Chondroitine sulfate and collagen. After we have calculated a relative quantity of tightly bound water in samples. Percentage of bond water molecules is higher in biopolymer films than in bulk water. It is probably due to formation of water bridges which stabilize the polymer structure.
