The partial hydrolysis of chitosan yields water-soluble chitosan, which has antioxidant, antimicrobial and antitumor properties.
The findings counseled no significant interaction in IR absorption pattern of cytarabine functional groups after encapsulation in CS-sTPP complex, which projected the potential of chitosan nanoparticulate system to entrap cytarabine.
Ihab Osama, the company's director, said the chitosan, which is found in the shrimp peel, can be used in 240 industries, including cosmetics, medicines, and pesticides.
conducted study on dry and waterborne DGEBA resin system using chitosan as a curing agent [11].
Conclusion: Results showed that optimum condition for production of chitosan nanoparticles with the minimum size and narrow size distribution was a minimum value for flow rate and highest value for applied voltage along with an optimum chitosan concentration.
Some natural polymers such as fibroin silkworm, collagen, elastin, fibronectin, chitosan, alginate, cellulose and hyaluronic acid have been successfully used as scaffold materials for tissue engineering (Dunne et al.
The resulting chitosan then has to be purified before it is used.
Chitosan is a copolymer of glucosamine and N-acetylglucosamine and it has an amine functional group, which is strongly reactive with metal ions [10].
Chitosan may also be added to inorganic biomaterials such as hydroxyapatite and beta-tricalcium phosphate; mechanical characteristics are enhanced and biocompatibility is maintained (GINALSKA & PRZEKORA, 2014).
Chitosan is a sugar that is typically derived from shrimp and crab shell waste and is known for its biocompatible, biodegradable, antibacterial, antifungal, analgesic and haemostatic (stops bleeding) properties.
The deacetylation of chitin leads to obtaining chitosan, its most important derivative, whose primary structure is identical to that of chitin, except for the fact that in chitosan predominate the 2-amine-2-deoxy-Dglucopyranose units (Airoldi, 2008).
