Summary

Some important trends of application of chitin and its derivatives in the technology of chemical fibres and plastics have been reviewed. In Poland, chitin and its deacetylated derivative — chitosan — are obtained as by-products of antarctic crustacean processing. Chitin and its derivatives can be used as a raw materiał for films and fibres, as well as a modificator for other plastic products. The application of chitin polymers is rather limited to special purposes because of their high price.
