Chitosan is the second most abundant biopolymer in nature after cellulose. It is widely distributed. It is mainly distributed in the shells of many lower animals, especially arthropods such as shrimp, crabs,s and insects. It also exists in the cell walls of lower plants such as bacteria, algae and fungi.
Chitosan is a kind of polyelectrolyte with biocompatibility, anti-bacterial and biodegradation. It has a wide range of biomedical and industrial applications. Its chemical properties and low toxicity can be used as a component of drugs, gene transfer systems, biodegradable membranes and skeleton in tissue engineering.
It is mainly used in food, medicine, agricultural seeds, daily chemical industry, industrial wastewater treatment and other industries. Chitosan oligosaccharide has the functions of improving immunity, activating cells, preventing cancer, reducing blood lipid, lowering blood pressure, anti-aging and regulating the body environment. It can be used in the fields of medicine, health care and food.
