Chitosan was effectively degraded by hydrogen peroxide under irradiation with ultraviolet light. The existence of a synergetic effect on the degradation was demonstrated by means of viscometry. In addition, the optimal conditions of degradation were determined on the basis of orthogonal tests. The structure of the degraded product was characterized by Fourier-transform infrared spectra (FTIR) analysis and diffuse reflectance spectra (DRS) analysis. The mechanism of the degradation of chitosan… CONTINUE READING
