The Introductction of Chitin

Chitin is a nitrogen-containing polysaccharide, also known as chitin, chitin, chitin, chitosan, bright keratin, etc., is the second most abundant biopolymer in nature, is widely distributed, is an important component of many lower animals, especially arthropods such as shrimp, crabs, insects, etc., shells, shrimp shells contain about 15% to 30%, crab shells contain about 15% to 20%. It is also a component of the cell membrane of the lower plant fungus, lichen, green algae, yeast, jellyfish and squid body also contains. It is estimated that the annual amount of biosynthesis exceeds 1 billion tons, which is a huge renewable resource.

Chitin appearance of white or yellowish transparent body, is 2-acetyl glucosamine polymer, its chemical structure is similar to natural cellulose, in addition to the presence of hydroxyl groups in the molecule, but also contains acetylamino and amino functional groups, available for structural modification of more groups, with more than cellulose and its derivatives of the functional properties of the more abundant, insoluble in water, ethanol, ether, salts, and dilute acid, dilute alkali; can be soluble in acetic acid, with concentrated Caustic soda solution, the formation of glassy colloidal soluble chitin (also known as polyamidoamine glucose, chitosamine, sugar liquid chitin, chitosan, etc.)


The Application & Function of Chitin

Chitin and products made of chitin are widely used because of their unique physical and chemical properties, such as moisture resistance, sunlight resistance, mildew resistance, corrosion resistance and other excellent characteristics.
In the textile, printing and dyeing industry as a color-fixing agent, fabric shrinkage finishing agent. In the pharmaceutical industry, it is used in the manufacture of anticancer drugs such as chlorourethromycin, artificial skin, surgical threads, and cholestrol-lowering drugs.
Chitin is used as water treatment agent, flocculant and health food additive in environmental protection, beverage and food industry. Gluing agent for paper making and artificial board industry. A new generation of biodegradable film for food packaging and agricultural mulch.
In agriculture, chitin is used in fertilizers, pesticides, pesticide release agents are compound materials, soaking agent, scientific research for enzyme solid truncation interceptor, separation membrane artificial kidney. For, the development and application of chitin, in the international, Japan and the United States amount of the largest producer, but also the largest consumer market.
Chitin and its derivatives in the cosmetics industry is widely used, such as shampoo, conditioner, bath, hair gel, mousse, perfume, night dew, water-based cosmetics, creams, lipsticks and other series of products, with the following excellent performance and efficacy: (a) safe, non-toxic. (b) Good film-forming, breathability, biocompatibility. It forms a film on the skin surface, and because the film is a three-dimensional mesh structure, all kinds of moisturizing factors and physiological functional substances can be encapsulated in it, and it has a continuous slow-release effect. (c)Good skin adhesion. (d)Good stability: pH1~14 stable. Cold and heat stability is also good, good compatibility. (e) Good skin conditioning, biodegradable, in line with environmental requirements.
