Study on Dynamics of Electrochemical Degradation for Chitosan
The electrochemical degradation of chitosan was studied with using graphite as anode and cathode, NaCl solution as supporting electrolyte. The effects of current density, temperature, NaCl concentration, pH, chitosan concentration on the degradation dynamics were investigated. It was shown that the electrochemical degradation of chitosan obeys the rule of random degradation, and the kinetic equation was established.
