<p align="justify">The viscosity of chitosan solutions in 1% acetic acid of various concentrations (0.25-1.0% by weight of chitosan) was measured by Light scattering method. The data were fitted to Mark-Houwink equation as n1 = 4.74 x 10-2 (MJ °'723 which helps evaluate the average molecular weight (weight average) of chitosan samples with a knowledge of their intrinsic viscosity.</p>
