Chitosan is a natural biopolymer modified from chitin, which is the main structural component of squid pens, cell walls of some fungi and shrimp and crab shells.
Chitosan are copolymers found together in nature. They are inherent to have specific properties of being environmentally friendly and easily degradable.
1) As raw material of chitosan derivatives’ production
2) Use in agriculture as biostimulant formulation
3) Chemical auxiliary
4) Raw material of food industrial
5) Medical Textile
