Co-assembly in chitosan-surfactant mixtures: thermodynamics, structures, interfacial properties and applications.

Abstract

In this review, different aspects characterizing chitosan-surfactant mixtures are summarized and compared. Chitosan is a bioderived cationic polysaccharide that finds wide-ranged applications in various field, e.g., medical or food industry, in which synergistic effects with surfactant can play a fundamental role. In particular, the behavior of chitosan… (More)
