Resumen: Viscosimetric studies of chitosan nitrate and chitosan chlorhydrate in acid free NaCl aqueous solution. Abstract Two salts of the biopolymer chitosan were prepared in aqueous medium by employing an excess of HCl or HNO3 in order to ensure neutralization of all NH2-chitosan groups. Chitosan salts were extensively dialyzed in dionised water and dried at 40 ºC until film formation. The films were characterized by thermogravimetry, FTIR and conductimetric tritration. QH+Cl- and QH+NO3- salts were viscosimetrically evaluated in free acid aqueous solutions in the presence of NaCl to control ionic strength of the medium. Unexpected high intrinsic viscosity values were obtained at low ionic strength when QH+NO3- salt were evaluated. Smidsrod´s approach was employed to estimate the stiffness parameter of both salts and B = 0.084 and 0.120 for QH+Cl- and QH+NO3-, respectively, were obtained.
