Author(s):

Abstract:
Chitosan is obtained by the deacetylation of a naturally occurring biopolymer called chitin which is one of the key constituents of the shells of crustaceans. Chitosan has been exploited as a “green” catalyst in its native form as well as a solid support for carrying out various reactions. It offers several advantages like biodegradability, non-toxicity, biocompatibility, low cost, reusability etc. Advances in the exploitation of chitosan and its derivatives in various organic transformations are reported in this review.
