Abstract
Abstract Chitosan is the deacetylated form of chitin, a biopolymer that can be obtained from various waste streams and shows antimicrobial activity against different fungi, gram positive and gram negative bacteria. Although chitosan has been studied for years, many aspects remain unclear. This review gives an overview of the antimicrobial activity of chitosan and novel chitosan derivatives of the last 15 years. The most important parameters (molecular weight, degree of deacetylation, etc.) are discussed along with a status update on the mode of action of chitosan.

Abstract Nano Ag/ZnO hybrid material has been considered to be a promising nanocomposites for biomedical application because it has enhanced antibacterial activity and low cytotoxicity. Here a sponge-like nano Ag/ZnO-loaded chitosan composite dressing was first synthesized via preparing a chitosan sponge by lyophilization process, followed by the incorporation of Ag/ZnO nanocomposites into chitosan sponge. The porosity, swelling, blood clotting and in vitro antibacterial activity against drug-se...

Abstract Sulfonated chitosan (SCS) was prepared via a facile chemical procedure by using 1,3-propane sultone attached to the backbone of chitosan. The resulting chitosan derivative was characterized by Fourier transform-infrared spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, gel permeation chromatography, elemental analysis, and thermo gravimetric analysis. The antibacterial experiments demonstrated that SCS exhibited higher antibacterial activities against Escherichia coli and Staphyloc...

Abstract The present study aims at in vitro antibacterial and antioxidant activity evaluation of chitosan modified with monomethyl fumaric acid (MFA) using 1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethylaminopropyl) carbodiimide (EDC) as mediator. Three different kinds of chitosan derivatives Ch-Ds-1,Ch-Ds-2 and Ch-Ds-3 were synthesized by feeding different concentration of MFA. The chemical structures of resulting materials were characterized by 1 H NMR, 13 C NMR, HR-XRD, FT-IR and TNBS assay. The results showed that Ch...

Abstract N , N , N -trimethyl chitosan (TMC) is a quaternized chitosan derivative with excellent solubility in aqueous solutions. It has been extensively studied as an absorption enhancer, antibacterial agent and gene vector due to its ability to form complexes with anionic gels or macromoleculars. However, the research which describes the process of TMC preparation and its new applications has not been fully reviewed. In this paper, recent progress regarding different TMC preparation methods an...

Abstract This study employed the technique of ionic gelation in the manufacture of low- and medium-molecular weight chitosan nanoparticles. Nanoparticles were characterised (size, size distribution, surface charge and morphology) and their antimicrobial activity assessed against cheese-derived cultures, as well as a select panel of Gram-positive and Gram-negative microorganisms. Antimicrobial activity was determined by the minimum inhibition concentration via the micro dilution method using 96-w...

Preventing deterioration and extending shelf life by using natural agents remain challenges in the distribution of premium-quality blueberry. Herein, Botryotinia fuckeliana (B. fuckeliana) was isolated from the rotting postharvest blueberry and identified, and the causal pathogen was re-isolated from the decay blueberry to confirm Koch's postulates. Experimental results indicated that spore germination and mycelial growth of B. fuckeliana, were significantly inhibited by chitosan in a concentrat...

Abstract Chitosan with different degree of deacetylation (DD) and ultra high molecular weight (MW >10 6 ) was prepared from 尾-chitin by mild deacetylation. The effects of DD of chitosan and pH value of its solution/suspension on its antibacterial activity were investigated. The results showed that the optimal pH value was 6.0 for the highest bactericidal activity. The antibacterial activity against Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus of chitosan solution at pH 6.0 enhanced as the DD of ch...

Abstract Chitosan is a non-toxic, biocompatible, biodegradable natural cationic polymer known for its low imunogenicity, antimicrobial, antioxidant effects and wound-healing activity. To improve its therapeutic potential, new chitosan-sulfonamide derivatives have been designed to develop new wound dressing biomaterials. The structural, morphological and physico-chemical properties of synthesized chitosan derivatives were analyzed by FT-IR, 1 H NMR spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, swel...

Abstract Pyridine moieties were introduced into chitosan by nucleophilic substitution to afford N -(1-carboxybutyl-4-pyridinium) chitosan chloride (pyridine chitosan). The resulting chitosan derivative was well characterized, and its antifungal activity was examined, based on the inhibition of mycelial growth and spore germination. The results indicated that pyridine chitosan exhibited enhanced antifungal activity by comparison with pristine chitosan. The values of the minimum inhibitory concent...

ABSTRACT null null Bacterial infections have become one of the top ten public health concerns worldwide. These problems are aggravated with the emergence of multi-drug resistant bacterial strains. Thus, it is necessary to adopt novel technological strategies, such as development of bionanomaterials to prevent the infection, and treat this kind of bacteria. At this regard, the chemical modification of chitosan (Cs), by the covalent attachment of a hydrocarbon chain (octanoic acid), was developed ...

Large surface area, rich vascularisation, well defined mucous membrane, balanced pH and relatively low enzymatic activity makes vagina a suitable site for drugs associated with women's health issues like Urinary tract infection (UTI) and vaginal infections. Therapeutic performance of intravaginal dosage forms largely depends on the properties of polymers and drugs. Chitosan (CS) because of its unique physical, chemical, pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical properties have received a great deal o...
