Determination of residual protein and endotoxins in chitosan (review)

  • A. V. Il’ina
  • V. P. Varlamov


Methods for the determination of residual protein and endotoxins in chitosan preparations, which can be used as vectors for biologically active compounds delivery, are discussed. The limits of their use for the determination of residual impurities in chitosan preparations associated with the structure of the biopolymer are estimated.
