Part of the Advanced Structured Materials book series (STRUCTMAT, volume 56)

Abstract

Chitin is a naturally occurring polysaccharide and the second most abundant biopolymer. It is mainly synthesized via a biosynthetic way by an enormous number of living organisms crutaceans and arthropods. Due to severe solubility limitations chitin nanowhiskers have received relatively lesser attention, compared to those of starch and cellulose. However literature reports indicate that they are also among promising reinforcing materials for nanocomposites, due to their high stiffness and strength. This chapter compiles the synthesis, modification and properties of chitin nanowhiskers and their nanocomposites with rubber, with focus on the effect of filler loading on mechanical, thermal and sorption properties.
