The topic of my research is chitosan degradation to be valuable products that can be applied for food or medical applications. Chitosan is a natural polymer and generally derived from chitin recovered from crustacean shells. Currently, my research is focussing on oxidative degradation of chitosan to produce low molecular weight chitosan and chitooligomer. This research can encourage and support other research to utilise renewable natural resources based material for the establishment of natural resources-based industries, especially chitosan-based industrial products.
