Kinetic study of acid depolymerization of chitosan and effects of low molecular weight chitosan on erythrocyte rouleaux formation.


In this study, the depolymerization of chitosan was carried out in an acetic acid aqueous solution and was followed by viscometry for molecular weight determination. It was found that the depolymerization rate increased with elevated temperatures and with high acid concentrations. Based on FTIR analysis, the chitosan was depolymerized randomly along the… (More)
