Chitosan Nanocrystals Synthesis via Aging and Application Towards Alginate Hydrogels for Sustainable Drug Release

Abstract

In this article, we demonstrate a new and clean method for the fabrication of chitosan nanocrystals relying on aging. We provide metrics to showcase the greeness of this method. We are then using these materials as building block to fabricate alginate hydrogels, and demonstrated that they have superior properties for gelation and drug release.
