Abstract

In this study, we investigated the interface contacting inhibition behaviors of chitosan against bacterial in the dispersing state. For that purpose, chitosan microspheres (CMs) in the dispersing state was prepared by the emulsification cross-linking method. The CMs had smooth surface and spherical shape with the diameter of about 124 μm. They were stable after sterilization at 121°C and 150 kPa for 20 min. The CMs had similar antibacterial activity to that of chitosan in the solution form. Their antibacterial activities increased with the increase of the CM concentration, while decreased with the increase of pH of the system. It was found that the CMs with the degree of deacetylation (DD) of 63.6% exhibited the highest antibacterial activity, while the CMs with the DD of 83.7% exerted the lowest antibacterial activity among the three tested samples.
