Studies on Extraction Methods of Chitin from Crab Shell and Investigation of Its Mechanical Properties

Abstract

This paper describes the most common methods for recovery of chitin from crab shell. Deproteinization, demineralization and deacetylation are the main processes for the extraction of chitin and chitosan. The mechanical properties were investigated to recognize their mechanical applications. Chitin is the most widespread biopolymer in nature, after cellulose… (More)
