The objective of this chapter is to present fundamental factors (e.g. intrinsic and extrinsic) influencing chitosan as antimicrobial agent, for effective practical application. The antimicrobial activity of chitosan is well observed on a wide variety of micro-organisms including fungi, algae and some bacteria. However, the antimicrobial action is influenced by intrinsic and extrinsic factors such as the type of chitosan (e.g. plain or derivative); degree of chitosan polymerization; host natural… CONTINUE READING
