Chitosan HCl

  • also known under the names: Chitosan hydrochloride, Chitosan chloride, Chitosani hydrochloridum
  • listed in Eur. Ph., for medical applications
  • Quality according to Eur. Ph.
  • soluble in water
  • molecular formula: H-(C8-H13-N-O5)n-H-O(C6H11-N-O4)n CL-H

Properties of Chitosan HCl

  • Stronger swelling behavior than chitosan
  • Water soluble
  • Hemostatic effects
  • Mucoadhesion
  • Increases the permeability of tight junctions in the intestine
  • Applications of Chitosan HCl
  • Hydrogels
  • Wound dressings
  • Drug transport and release

We offer various Chitosan HCL specifications with different degrees of deacetylation and viscosities / molecular weights. High molecular weight chitosan chlorides are also available.

The minimum order quantity for product 44001 is 20g. For products 54047, 54039, 54040 and 54046 the minimum order quantity is 10g.

In the table below, you will find an overview of our offered Chitosan-HCl specifications.

Of course, we also offer our chitosan HCL specifications in Chitoceuticals® GMP compliant quality. Our GMP-compliant products are manufactured in our clean rooms according to EU GMP guidelines. As a result, they have a very low endotoxin limit as well as a very low microbial load. For our Chitosan-HCl products we also have a Drug Master File with the FDA.

Our GMP-compliant products are currently not yet available in the store and can be ordered by email. The minimum order quantity is 10g. We would be pleased to make you an offer, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
