Scholarcy highlights

  • The crystalline and structural properties of chitosan-metal complexes were different from those of chitosan, and the -NH2, -OH groups in chitosan molecule were considered as the dominating reactive sites
  • Results indicatd that the inhibitory effects of chitosan-metal complexes were dependent on the property of metal ions, the molecular weight and degree of deacetylation of chitosan and environmental pH values
  • All the results show that chitosan-metal complexes are a promising candidate for novel antimicrobial agents that can be used in cosmetic, food, textile et al References
