Nanoporous chitosan materials in both membrane and bulk form with pore diameter ranges of 10-50 nm were prepared by a novel emulsion-mediated templating method. Considering the biocompatibility and versatility of chitosan, the nanoporous chitosan material is expected to have a wide variety of applications in the biotechnological and biomaterials areas.
