Peroxide chitosan derivatives and their application

Via radical reactions of chitosan and 5-tert-butylperoxy-5-methyl-1-hexen-3-in peroxychitosanes with ditertiary peroxide fragments were synthesized. They can be used as macroinitiator and coemulsifiers for emulsion polymerization of vinyl monomers. Latex polymers obtained antibacterial properties. Polymeranalogical interaction of chitosan with tert-butylperоxymethyl ester of butendicarbon acid yields in peroxychitosanes with controlled quantity of primary-tertiary peroxide fragments. New pH-sensitive smart hydrogels with antibacterial properties were created on their basis.
