Scholarcy highlights

  • Membranes of the polyelectrolyte complex between chitosan and pectin were prepared by precipitating the complex from a mixture of both polysaccharides
  • The membranes were heated at 120 °C in order to convert the –NH3+-OOC- salt bonds into amide bonds
  • The extent of amide bond formation was followed by FTIR spectroscopy
