Synthesis of the ketimine of chitosan and 4,6-diacetylresorcinol, and study of the catalase-like activity of its copper chelate.


PMID 24750730

Abstract

In this study, a new chitosan derivative (ketimine) was synthesized by condensation of chitosan with 4,6-diacetylresorcinol (DAR) at heterogeneous medium. The ketimine derivative of chitosan (DAR-chitosan) was characterized by elemental (C, H, N), spectral (DR-UV-vis and FT-IR spectroscopy), structural (powder XRD), and morphological (SEM) analyses. The degree of substitution (DS) of DAR-chitosan was evaluated by elemental analysis and (13)C CP-MAS NMR spectroscopy and found to be around 12%. The copper (II) metal complex of DAR-chitosan was prepared and characterized by FT-IR, DR-UV-vis and inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES). Thermal behaviors of the synthesized compounds were investigated by DSC and TG-DTG-DTA analysis. The catalytic activity of copper (II) complex of chitosan derivative (DAR-chitosan-Cu) was investigated on hydrogen peroxide decomposition. The copper chelate showed high efficiency (over 80%) towards the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide as heterogeneous catalyst.
