Advances in Organic Synthesis

Volume: 8


This chapter provides a recent description of chemical synthesis, encapsulation of chitosan microspheres and the incorporation of microorganisms involving technological advances to bioremediation of inorganic and organic environmental pollutants as well as their antimicrobial activity. In addition, the potential of chitosan and their derivatives in the bioremediation of water polluted by oil spills, heavy metals, dyes, phenols and pesticides is explored.

Keywords: Antimicrobial Chitosan, Bacterial Consortium, Bioaugmentation, Bioremediation, Carboxymethyl Chitosans, Chitosan Beads, Chitosan- Metal composites, Grafted Chitosans, Pollutants, Synthesis of Chitosan Derivatives.
