In this thesis I have studied some of the most important, the most used or the most
interesting applications of chitosan, which give us materials with unique properties. For
beginning I have introduced how wide is chitosan spread, it followed by description of
its properties, so we could understand, how and why is it so wanted for developing
advanced materials. After that, I have described it’s derivates, their properties and fields
of applications. Among other things, modification with polybenzoxazine and a renewable
property of a material, namely the self-healing and the shape memory effect are presented.
Finally, a brief discussion with the conclusions followed.
