9780128027356: Chitosan in the Preservation of Agricultural Commodities

Chitosan in the Preservation of Agricultural Commodities, based on insights gained from the 2014 International Meeting on Chitosan, presents a cohesive overview of research topics regarding the production and characterization of chitosan, the development of coatings and films, its functional properties, and the antimicrobial potential of this compound on economically important agricultural commodities, including its modes of action from a physiological, enzymatic, and molecular perspective, along with evaluations of the activity of chitosan nanocomposites and nanoparticles in biological models.

Opening sections deal with the chemical characteristics and functional properties of chitosan and new chitosan-based biomaterials that are intended for food preservation. Additional sections cover various aspects of the control achieved by chitosan on different microorganisms affecting various horticultural commodities, grains, and ornamentals, and its modes of action.

Final sections discuss enzymatic and gene expression induction by chitosan application on fruit and vegetables and insights on the use of chitosan nanocomposites in biological models associated with food conservation. Written by an international team of experts, this book is the only reference to provide this integrated and application-based information.

  • Explores obtaining, characterizing, and developing chitosan coatings and films for agricultural use
  • Presents functional properties, antimicrobial potential, and modes of action of chitosan from a physiological, enzymatic, and molecular perspective
