The interest manifested, in recent decades, in biocomposites, is explained by the wide range of their potential applications in many fields. Special attention has been paid to carbon nanotubes, which exhibit superior electrical and mechanical properties that can improve the properties of biopolymer composites. The current review focuses on the progress made in carbon nanotube/chitosan composites. The effect of the properties of carbon nanotubes used as fillers was evaluated in chitosan
