Chitosan in acetic acid

  1. Mar 29, 2017 #1
    I am trying to create a solution of Chitosan (Low MW) in 1% Acetic acid. I've tried dissolving up to 3gr per 100ml. My problem is that by using extensive sonication, heating (~50 C) and stirring for days the solution is still very thick (very viscous) and you can see particles in it. Any suggestion to make chitosan soluble?
