The unique physicochemical properties offer chitosan great potential in a range of biomedical applications such as tissue engineering, drug delivery vehicles, and enzyme immobilization for biosensing. Methacrylate functionalized chitosan is thermo/photo cross-linkable and used as a precursor for the fabrication of hydrogels in a wide range of biomedical applications including tissue engineering, 3D bioprinting, and drug and gene delivery. Chitosan-based material also has mucoadhesive properties and hence widely used in transmucosal therapeutics delivery.
