- ... One of the biggest disadvantages of protein cross-linking method is the toxicity of cross-linking agents. In this paper, a clean and non-toxic cross-linking system for protein materials using citric acid (CA) as crosslinker and polyols as cross-linking extender was established. Incorporation of polyols could enhance cross-linking performance of CA by forming branched network among protein molecule ...
