Manufacture and properties[ edit ] Forming chitosan by partial deacetylation of chitin Commercial chitosan is derived from the shells of shrimp and other sea crustaceans, including Pandalus borealis , pictured here. A common method for the synthesis of chitosan is the deacetylation of chitin using sodium hydroxide in excess as a reagent and water as a solvent. The reaction follows first-order kinetics though it occurs in two steps; the activation energy barrier for the first stage is estimated at This makes chitosan water-soluble and a bioadhesive which readily binds to negatively charged surfaces   such as mucosal membranes.
Chitosan enhances the transport of polar drugs across epithelial surfaces, and is biocompatible and biodegradable. It is not approved by FDA for drug delivery though. Purified quantities of chitosans are available for biomedical applications.
Nanofibrils have been made using chitin and chitosan. The cellular targets are the plasma membrane and nuclear chromatin. Subsequent changes occur in cell membranes, chromatin, DNA, calcium, MAP Kinase, oxidative burst, reactive oxygen species, callose pathogenesis-related PR genes and phytoalexins.
It is one of the most abundant biodegradable materials in the world. Chitosan active biopesticides represent a new tier of cost-effective biological control of crops for agriculture and horticulture.
When used as seed treatment or seed coating on cotton, corn, seed potatoes, soybeans, sugar beets, tomatoes, wheat and many other seeds, it elicits an innate immunity response in developing roots which destroys parasitic cyst nematodes without harming beneficial nematodes and organisms.
The US Forest Service has conducted research on chitosan to control pathogens in pine trees   and increase resin pitch outflow which resists pine beetle infestation.
NASA confirmed chitosan elicits the same effect in plants on earth. Filtration[ edit ] Chitosan can be used in hydrology as a part of a filtration process. It also removes heavy minerals , dyes , and oils from the water. Added late in the brewing process, chitosan improves flocculation , and removes yeast cells, fruit particles, and other detritus that cause hazy wine. The hemostatic agent works by an interaction between the cell membrane of erythrocytes negative charge and the protonated chitosan positive charge leading to involvement of platelets and rapid thrombus formation.
The chitosan salts are biocompatible and biodegradable making them useful as absorbable haemostats. The protonated chitosan is broken down by lysozyme in the body to glucosamine and the conjugate base of the acid such as lactate or succinate , substances naturally found in the body.
The design mimics the layered structure of the insect endocuticle with similar components. The resulting layered composite plastic film is tough and can be made more or less flexible depending on how much water is added.
