This paper describes an elegant cross-linking technique for the preparation of chitosan-chloroquinoline derivative by using a greener technique. Chitosan solution in aqueous acetic acid was treated with 2-chloroquinoline-3-carbaldehyde solution to form hydrogel; the resulting hydrogel was subjected to solvent exchange. Combining the results of FTIR and XRD confirmed that 2-chloroquinoline-3-carbaldehyde have been reacted to chitosan. The morphology of the derivative was investigated by X-ray… CONTINUE READING
