Figure 4

Storage modulus and kinetics of alginate gels as a function of particle size. Upper panel: Storage modulus of alginate gels as a function of time for gels made of sodium alginate (F g = 0.7 and M W  = 219 kDa) and Sr alginate at different particle sizes. The total alginate concentration was 2.1%, consisting of 1.0% from sodium alginate and 1.1% from Sr alginate. The curves were fitted by eq. 1 to the average data from three independent runs. Lower panel: Calculated maximum storage modulus (A) and half time (t 1/2 ) for the fitted data. Error bars denote the standard error of the mean calculated at each data point, and are shown when exceeding the dimension of point markers.
