This review article describes the current status of the production and consumption of chitin and chitosan, and their current practical applications in biotechnology with some attempted uses. The applications include: 1) cationic agents for polluted waste-water treatment, 2) agricultural materials, 3) food and feed additives, 4) hypocholesterolemic agents, 5) biomedical and pharmaceutical materials, 6) wound-healing materials, 7) blood anticoagulant, antithrombogenic and hemostatic materials, 8) cosmetic ingredients, 9) textile, paper, film and sponge sheet materials, 10) chromatographic and immobilizing media, and 11) analytical reagents.
