About Biopolymer

 

Biopolymers are polymers produced by living organisms; in other words, they are polymeric biomolecules. Since they are polymers, biopolymers contain monomeric units that are covalently bonded to form larger structures.

There are three main classes of biopolymers, classified according to the monomeric units used and the structure of the biopolymer formed: 

  • polynucleotides (RNA and DNA), which are long polymers composed of 13 or more nucleotide monomers
  • polypeptides, which are short polymers of amino acids, and 
  • polysaccharides, which are often linear bonded polymeric carbohydrate structures. Other examples of biopolymers includes rubber, suberin, melanin and lignin

Cellulose is the most common organic compound and biopolymer on Earth. About 33 percent of all plant matter is cellulose. The cellulose content of cotton is 90 percent, for wood, it is 50 percent. (Ref: Wikipedia)

 

Applications of Bio-Polymers

  • Biopolymer coating on cotton fabric for agro products. (Patent filed)
  • Antimicrobial coating on cotton/viscose fabric for medical, pharma, bio-safety.
  • Handmade paper industry to improve strength & printability
  • Effluent treatment in industries such, textile, paper, electroplating etc. 
  • Flocculating agent for removal of oil/proteins / high BOD in effluents. 
  • Electro-coagulation technique for effluents treatment.
  • Electrochemical reduction/oxidation of dyes in the effluent water.
     

About Chitosan

Chitosan is a linear polysaccharide composed of randomly distributed β-(1→4)-linked D-glucosamine(deacetylated unit) and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine (acetylated unit). It is made by treating the chitin shells of shrimp and other crustaceans with an alkaline substance, like sodium hydroxide. (Ref: Wikipedia)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Application of Chitosan and Derivatives has found applications in a multitude of industries for diverse applications.

  • Agriculture and Horticulture
  • Biomedical
  • Nutraceutical
  • Bioprinting
  • Antifungal storage
