The research history on chitin was started around 1970-1980, which was the 1st stage on chitin research. Now is going on the 2nd stage both fundamental and industrial fields.
To overview the recent publications, in my opinion, study on chitin (include chitosan) seems to be saturated or stopped. With opening the special issue “chitin”, I strongly hope the very exciting, break-through, scientific, and industrial valuable works.
