Chitosan undergoes radical-induced depolymerization in the presence of potassium persulfate at 60 C, leading to extensive crosslinking of the fragmented chains on subsequent cooling at 4 C. As a result, a possible conformational change leading to higher crystallinity, as evidenced by IR, X-ray and 13C NMR was observed.
