Abstract:

Chitosan was prepared by utilizing the Parapeneopsis stylifera shrimp shell waste generated from shrimp processing industries around Veraval region, Gujarat. Proximate composition, structural analysis and functional properties were carried out to understand the quality of the chitosan. Yield of the prepared chitosan was 4.41%. Proximate composition viz., moisture, protein and ash content of the chitosan were 6.24%, 1.99% and 0.39% respectively. Solubility in 1% acidic acid was 98.34% and pH was 7.9. Structural property of chitosan was studied using fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) analysis. Degree of deacetylation was calculated from the FTIR spectral data and it was found 76.43%. Functional properties such as water binding capacity and fat binding capacity were 637.33% and 331.28%, respectively. This study reveals the chitosan prepared from P. stylifera shell wastes could be utilized for commercial purposes by food and other industries.
