Chitin, chitosan, and their derivatives have been identified as versatile biopolymers for a broad range of agriculture and food applications. Up to now, several methods have been developed to determine degree of N-acetylation, DA, for chitin and chitosan. In this article, an effort has been made to review the available literature information on the DA determination. These methods are classified into three categories: (1) spectroscopy (IR, (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR, (15)N NMR, and UV); (2… CONTINUE READING
