    A film sensor based on chitosan that is capable to evidence the different water status has been successfully fabricated by an electrochemical deposition technique. Main objective of this study is to utilize the chitosan ...
  • Mechanical properties of paper from oil palm pulp treated with chitosan from horseshoe crab 

    Agusnar, Harry; Irwana, Nainggolan, Dr.; Sukirman (AENSI Publisher All rights reserved, 2013-10)
    The application of chitosan as an additive in papermaking to improve the strength and water resistant properties is described. Unbleached sulphate pulp from oil palm stem was treated with chitosan. The chitosan was prepared ...
  • Milk quality degradation sensor based on chitosan biopolymer 

    Nainggolan, Irwan, Dr.; Nasution, Tulus Ikhsan, Dr.; Shantini, Devi (Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP), 2012-06-18)
    Chitosan thin film used as sensing material because of its structure and properties where it consist of amine group which has free electron. Milk powder can undergo oxidation process when exposed in the air. In this ...
  • The sensing mechanism and detection of low concentration acetone using chitosan-based sensors 

    Tulus Ikhsan, Nasution; Irwana, Nainggolan, Dr.; Sabar Derita, Hutagalung, Dr.; Khairel Rafezi, Ahmad, Dr.; Zainal Arifin, Ahmad (Elsevier B. V., 2013)
    This paper aims to discuss the usage of chitosan film sensors to detect acetone concentrations in human breath, in order to precisely diagnose diabetes mellitus in patients. Acetone concentration in the breath varies from ...
  • Study on agitating time effect to electrical characteristics of chitosan sensor 

    Ainnie Shakirah, Arif; Irwana, Nainggolan; Tulus Ikhsan, Nasution (Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP)Centre for Graduate Studies, 2010-10-16)
    The film sensors based on chitosan as a sensing material have been successfully fabricated using an electrochemical deposition technique. The agitating times of preparing chitosan solution were investigated for 1, 2 and 5 ...
