A New Material Based on Renewable Resources: Chitin and Betaine
Water-insoluble chitin betainate was environmentally friendly prepared by esterifying chitin with betaine hydrochloride in the presence of dicyandiamide by dry process. The process achieved free-pollution and easy treatment. The chitin betainate holds potential as an adsorbent by the results of the adsorption experiments.
