We present a comprehensive study of the interactions between chitosan nanoparticles (15, 100 and 200 kDa with the same degree of deacetylation 90%) and two model proteins, i.e., bovine (BSA) and human serum albumins (HSA), with the aim of correlating chitosan molecular weight (Mw) and the binding affinity of these naturally occurring polymers to protein… CONTINUE READING
