- Catechol-conjugated chitosan (CCs), used as tissue adhesive, wound dressing, and hemostatic materials, has been drawing much more attention. However, most CCs tissue adhesives exhibit poor adhesion strength, and few studies on optimization of cohesion and adhesion strength of CCs derivatives have been conducted. This work focused on the balance between cohesion and adhesion strength of catechol-conjugated chitosan (CCs) derivatives via different mechanisms of chemical and enzymatic conjugation. CCs derivatives were characterized regarding its mechanical property, cytotoxicity, platelet adhesion and wound healing test. Mechanical properties could be optimized by the degree of catechol substitution, pH and the presence of oxidizing agent, resulting in that the highest value of adhesive shear strength to the porcine tissue is 64.8？±？5.7？kPa. In addition, CCs derivatives exhibit decreased toxicity and promoted in vivo wound healing effects as comparing to a commercially available adhesive (Dermabond®). All the results demonstrate that CCs derivatives can be used as well-optimized tissue adhesives as well as a hemostat.
