In this study, a number of aqueous solutions of chitosan/agar blends (with chitosan as the major component) were prepared. The effects of temperature, shear rate and shearing time on the rheological property, i.e. the apparent viscosity, were investigated for the blend solutions. Results show that a non-Newtonian behaviour was pronounced at temperatures from 20oC to 50oC for all solutions and that a decrease in viscosity with increasing temperature was also observed. It was also found that alldoaj:ed1d9d341e04433ea2d66042e512ce48 fatcat:jjvqnpftgzek5hxgrysdwixlye
