0001). 198). Using chitosan solution (pH Ͻ 6), gel formation will occur with a number of different multivalent anionic counterions. By adding a chitosan solution dropwise into a crosslinking solution having pH Ͻ 6, a real ionotropic gel is formed (528). The NH2 groups of chitosan are protonated and an ionic crosslinking occurs. Chitosan crosslinked with high molecular weight counterions (529–531) results in capsules (Table 4), while crosslinking with low molecular weight counterions results Table 4 Possible Counterions for the Ionotropic Gelation of Chitosan Polycation Counterions Chitosan–NH2 Low molecular weight Pyrophosphate Tripolyphosphate Tetrapolyphosphate Octapolyphosphate Hexametaphosphate [Fe(CN)6]4Ϫ, [Fe(CN)6]3Ϫ High molecular weight Poly(1-hydroxy-1-sulfonate-2-propene) Poly(aldehydocarbonic acid) Xanthane Pectin Copyright © 2002 Marcel Dekker, Inc.

0 g L-1). Significant reductions in urea and creatinine levels in serum were observed after 4 weeks of chitosan ingestion (492). During the treatment period, no clinically problematic symptoms were observed. These data suggest that chitosan might be uneffective treatment for renal failure patients, although the mechanism of the effect should be investigated further.

Parahybae (398) and 20°C for the galactomannan of M. scabrella, determined by viscoelastic measurements and microcalorimetry. A Tg of 40–50°C was found by Shatwell et al. (399) for locust bean gum (LBG) (M/G ϭ 43). Lundin and Hermansson (400) reported a difference of 13°C Tg of two LBG samples, with M/G ϭ 3 (40°C) and 5 (53°C), in mixtures with xanthan. It appears that the more substituted galactomannans have lower temperatures of gelation in the presence of xanthan. The mechanism of gelation depends also on the M/G ratio.
