Chitosan Experts

The following experts are available as chitosan consultants and chitosan expert witnesses.  ORC experts are peer-recommended authorities who have been carefully selected and rigorously screened.
    Definition:  Chitosan - A polysaccharide containing non-acetylated beta-linked D-glucosamine residues. It occurs in nature as a cell wall constituent in the hyphae of certain zygomycetes, and as a minor component of the spores of Fusarium solani. It is used to absorb heavy metals from water and industrial waste streams, in photographic emulsions, and for improving the dyeability of synthetic fibers. It can also be used as a food thickener, coagulant for healing wounds in medicine, and coating for moistureproof films.

Synonyms:  deacetylated chitin, mycosin, polyglucosamine
