Chitosan is a deacetylated derivative of chitin. Chitosan was one kind of the main ingredient used for food preservatives, winemaking fining agents, cosmetics, fat binders, health supplements, and other pharmacy or food fields. It receives a widespread application in drug delivery system design due to its biodegradability, biocompatibility, and availability of functional moieties (N-H, O-H) for chemical modification and tailoring of specific physicochemical properties essential in drug targeting.
