Paper Title:
Preparation and Characterization of Three Dimensions Chitosan Rods with Biomimetic Layered Structure Similar to Annual Ring
  Abstract

Inspired by the annual ring structure of wood, a cylindrical semi-permeable chitosan gel membrane was chosen as a template to separate chitosan solution from NaOH coagulation solution. Three dimensions (3D) chitosan (CS) rods (Φ5×80 mm) with layered structure similar to annual ring of wood were prepared via a novel and simple in-situ intermittently precipitating method. These chitosan rods presented quite good mechanical properties with bending strength and shear strength of 102MPa and 31MPa respectively. The concentric circles layered structure was approved by SEM characterization, the mechanism of preparation and the relationship between structure and properties of chitosan rods were also discussed.
