Activated-carbon-filled agarose hydrogel as a natural medium for seed germination and seedling growth

An activated-carbon-filled agarose (Agar-AC) hydrogel containing numerous concentrations of activated carbon (AC) was efficiently fabricated by a easy solvent solid approach. In comparison with pure agarose hydrogels, Agar-AC hydrogels exhibited glorious mechanical properties, good thermal stability and a extremely developed pore construction. The Agar-AC hydrogels additionally confirmed a sure diploma of enchancment in water retention…
