1. Introduction. Although chitin, which is the main component of exoskeletons of crustaceans such as crab and shrimp, is the second most abundant biopolymer in nature, synthesized at a rate of 10 10 –10 11 tons per year (Muzzarelli, 2012), most chitin is thrown away as industrial waste.Chitosan is produced by deacetylation of chitin and has a cationic linear …

First, bleached kraft pulp was adjusted to 3 wt%/v (3 g/100 ml) using either distilled water, or the previously chitosan solution of 1% in acetic acid as the solution, and was further fragmented using a 450 W blender for 10 min. Afterwards, it was subjected to further grinding using Super Masscolloider (Masuko Sangyo Co. Ltd., Japan).

Chitin is insoluble in water; however, water-soluble chitosan (ChS) has been produced after a chitin deacetylation process. A ChS molecule contains an –NH 2 group and two –OH radicals in each glycoside residue. Although chitin is naturally produced at a rate of around 1010 tons per year, most chitin is thrown away as commercial waste [].Chitin is disposed of as …
