In the present work, we report on the preparation
of microgels of chitosan crosslinked with sodium
tripolyphosphate (TPP) employing the microfluidics technique
(MF). To achieve this, several flow focusing geometries
were designed and tested. As a first step, a two-inlet
flow focusing geometry was employed to emulsify chitosan
and the crosslinking reaction was carried out offchip.
This procedure did not allow separating the resulting
chitosan microgels due to an incomplete crosslinking
reaction. A crosslinking reaction on-chip was studied as
an alternative. A four-inlet flow focusing geometrywas designed
in which three dispersed phases, chitosan 0.25%
(w/v), TPP 0.05% (w/v) and acetic acid 1% (v/v) and an
continuous phase mineral oil + Span 80 (3% w/v) were
employed. The flow rates for the continuous phase were
varied from 6.7 to 11.7 μL/min and chitosan microgels were
successfully obtained with average diameters from 68 to
42 μm. The average size of the microgels outside the MF
device decreased up to ~21% with respect to their size inside
the MF device due to partial expulsion of water from
the microgels when complete gelation occurred.
