Chitosan derivatives have gained significant interest as effective adsorbent for the removal of heavy metals due to outstanding characteristics such as the presence of amino and hydroxyl groups, non-toxicity, low cost and available in large quantities. In this present study, chitosan was degraded into two kinds of low molecular weight chitosan (CS8 and CS11), modified with pyruvic acid (PA), and then cross-linked with glutaraldehyde (GLA) to obtain cross-linked low molecular weight chitosandoi:10.24214/jecet.c.7.3.20111 fatcat:r2rsactf4jbxfbvg4qsh6prb5m
