Chitosan is a natural polymer that has been widely utilized for many purposes in the food, textile, agriculture, water treatment, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. Based on its characteristics, including biodegradability, non-toxicity and antimicrobial properties, it has been employed effectively in wound healing applications. Importantly, however, it is necessary to improve chitosan's capacities by combination with zinc oxide (ZnO), titanium dioxide (TiO₂) and silver (Ag) nanoparticles… CONTINUE READING
