Chitosan within the Preservation of Agricultural Commodities presents a cohesive overview of analysis subjects relating to the manufacturing and characterization of chitosan, the event of coatings and fi lms, its useful properties, and antimicrobial potential of this compound on economically necessary agricultural commodities.
The primary part offers with the chemical traits and practical properties of chitosan and new chitosan-based biomaterials meant for meals preservation. The second part covers numerous elements of the management achieved by chitosan on totally different microorganisms affecting numerous horticultural commodities, grains, and ornamentals, and its modes of motion. The third part explores enzymatic and gene expression induction by chitosan software on fruit and greens; the fourth part provides perception on using chitosan nanocomposites in organic fashions related to meals conservation and management of microorganisms.
