Vinyl Derivatives of Chitosan and Their Behaviors of Aggregation
Chitosan is a linear amino polysaccharide. Great attention has been paid to this biomacromolecule due to its abundance in nature, biodegradability, biocompatibility and bioactivity. Unfortunately, its poor solubility in both common organic solvents and aqueous solutions has hampered its widespread application and basic investigate. Chitosan and its derivatives form lyotropic cholesteric liquid cry...
