Extraction and characterization of chitin and chitosan from Callinectes amnicola and Penaeus notialis shell wastes

January-June 2021 - Vol 12 Num. 1

In the current investigation, chitin and chitosan are extracted from Callinectes amnicola (crab) and Penaeus notialis (shrimp) shell wastes using predetermined optimization conditions. The shrimp shell produces higher chitin yield (26.08%), higher chitosan yield (16.93%) and higher degree of deacetylation (DDA) of 89.73%...
