Use: Chitosan is a linear polysaccharide composed of randomly distributed β-(1-4)-linked D-glucosamine and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine. It is produced by basic (caustic soda) deacetylation reaction of chitin, the main component of fungi cell walls and insect or crustacean exoskeletons. Chitin is the second most abundant polymer in the biosphere (after cellulose), with app. 10 gigatons of chition being synthesized every year.
