Abstract

Carboxymethyl chitosan grafted with glycidyl methacrylate was synthesized by the reaction of carboxymethyl chitosan (CSCM) which was prepared from chitosan first and glycidyl methacrylate. The product has been characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectrum (FT-IR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), proton nuclear magnetic resonance (1H-NMR), solid 13carbon nuclear magnetic resonance (Solid 13C-NMR), 13carbon nuclear magnetic resonance (13C-NMR), and chemical analysis, which had different thermal properties from chitosan.
