Designing of materails which can be used in the application of radiation protection is a hot topic. Sodium alginate is widely used in textile applications such as warp sizing, dyeing finishing and printing paste. It has unique properties as the paste of reactive dyes. Making of its hibrit structures with metals are possible. In the present study, we have carried out the gamma-ray mass absorbtion coefficients of sodium alginate by using GEANT4 simulation code. Furthermore, we have considered Sodium alginat + Lead hibrid structure to obtain bigger mass absorbtion coefficients. In the present
study, protective capability of this hibrid structure for gamma rays are discussed in details.
