Membranes were prepared from chitosan with different molecular weights by a casting method. The molecular affinity and permeability of the membranes for sodium chloride, glucose, tyrosine, and bovine serum protein were measured at 4 °C and pH 7. The molecular permeability of the chitosan membranes was inversely related to molecular weight. All prepared membranes showed a molecular affinity to bovine serum protein. The higher the molecular weight of chitosan membrane, the higher the affinity and the lower permeability of the membrane to bovine serum protein.
