PREPARATION OF NEW MATERIALS BASED ON PISCE AND QUITOSAN COLLAGEN
Chitosan and collagen are natural macromolecules and the application of broad, interest and
which can interact with each other forming composites with the characteristics of a biomaterial.
Their common features allow the preparation of biocomposites with improved performance. This
study aims to conduct a survey of research on the production of materials from collagen and
chitosan for use in the biomedical field. This research is described in patents and scientific articles,
noting that in recent years has increased the interest in developing new materials the basis of these
biopolymers, and China is the country with the highest number of patent deposits. The results
provide important data on the development of biomaterials in biomedical and / or pharmaceutical.
