Current Opinion on Chitosan and its Derivatives: Biological Impact in Antimicrobial Applications From Nature to Chitosan and It Derivatives: How it is Working?

Abstract : Currently, lots of medical applications are investigated by using natural biopolymers such as polysaccharides. In this field chitosan is probably one of the most employed polysaccharides possessing very high pharmaceutical potential due to its chemo-physical and biological properties. The recent progresses in chemistry and biotechnologies apply to chitosan such as chemical and enzymatic modification allowed us to synthesize lot of biodegradable and biocompatible chitosan derivatives with huge impact in antimicrobial area. This present opinion describes the most widely described strategies for generate antimicrobial chitosan and derivatives by chemical/enzymatic structural macromolecular modification.
