used the technique of layer by layer self-assembly for producing free standing nanomembrane by using alginate with chitosan as this alginate is polyanion react with the amino group of chitosan enables it to ionize to a polycation in water, which shows a natural attraction to alginate because the carboxyl group of alginate turns it into a polyanion in water simultaneously.
