Light scattering studies indicate that oligochitosan (short-chain chitosan) solutions contain aggregates at pH values below the critical pH of phase separation, while at or above this point the gel phase coexists with the aggregate solution. This work demonstrates for the first time that the presence of D-glucosamine in an oligochitosan solution shifts the(More)
A series of oligochitosans (short chain chitosans) prepared by acidic hydrolysis of chitosan and characterized by their molecular weight, polydispersity and degree of deacetylation were used to determine their anticandidal activities. This study has demonstrated that oligochitosans show a high fungistatic activity (MIC 8-512 μg/ml) against Candida species(More)
Oligochitosan (short chain chitosan) is more soluble in acidic aqueous media than a high molecular weight (MW) chitosan, but its antimicrobial activity decreases with increase in degree of acetylation (DA) and increase in pH above a critical pH threshold point. In the present study, oligochitosans varying in MW were additionally N-acetylated and their(More)
The Antibacterial activity of chitosan of different molecular weights was studied against gramnegative Klebsiella pneumoniae at different pH values. It was found that the dependence of the inhibitory activity of chitosan on its molecular weight was undergoes inversion when increasing the pH of the medium above 7.0. In acidic media, chitosan of the higher(More)
A method for the determination of the antimicrobial activity of chitosan with the use of organic salts for the production of pH in the range of 5.5–8.2 was studied. The double-dilution method demonstrated the effectiveness of the determination of the antimicrobial activity of chitosan samples with different molecular weights and solubilities. It was found(More)
