Abstract

Biomimetic materials provide advantages for biocompatibility and/or biodegradability for biomedical applications. Designing novel biomaterials from abundant natural products helps formation of nontoxic and non-immunogenic biomaterial. Saccharide plays key roles in biochemical pathways and its structural property give advantages to designing innovative biomedical products. Chitosan [β-(1→4)-2- amino-2-deoxy-D-glucose] is a biocompatible basic polysaccharide homopolymer and it is nontoxic and is biodegradable. Chitosan digestion in the body converts chitosan to harmless amino sugar products and they are absorbed in the body safely.
