For skin contact medical devices, realizing a strong contact with skin is essential to precisely detect human biological information and enable human-machine interaction. In this study, we aimed to fabricate and characterize an inclusion complex film (ICF) for skin adhesion using α-cyclodextrin (α-CD) and nonanyl group-modified PVA (C9-PVA) under wet conditions. Based on the water insolubility of C9-PVA and the inclusion ability of α-CD for alkyl groups, α-CD/C9-PVA ICF was prepared. Read More
