Customizing Properties of beta-Chitin in Squid Pen by Chemical Treatments

Natural bio-products and processes are becoming more and more important for the preparation of new materials.

The squid pen from the Loligo vulgaris was used for preparation of beta-chitin materials characterized by different chemical, micro- and nano-structural properties that preserved, almost completely the macrostructural and the mechanical ones. The potential applications of these beta-chitin materials range from nanotechnology to regenerative medicine. This kind of materials, which are waste products

of the fishing industry, has also important environmental implications.
