Chitosan Oligosaccharide (COS) is kind of oligosaccharide (degree of polymerization<20), also known as chitin oligoes. Chemical name: β-(1,4)-2-azyl-2-deoxy-D-glucan.
Chemical Formula: (C6H11NO4)n
Molecular Weight: 3000 max. (Da)
Chitosan oligosaccharide (COS) is not the saccharide in common sense, Chitosan oligosaccharide derive from shrimp and crab shells. COS is not generate heat, but Chitosan oligosaccharide has various physiological activity for applying in various field. COS is a kind of oligose and animal cellulose. Chitosan oligosaccharide is the unique alkaline oligosaccharide in natural world

1)Chitosan oligosaccharide itself is rich in C, N, can be decomposed and used by microorganisms as a plant growth of the culture.
2)Chitosan oligosaccharide can change soil microbial flora, promote the growth of beneficial microorganisms and inhibit some plant pathogens.
3)Chitosan oligosaccharide can stimulate the growth of plants, so that crops and fruits and vegetables yield a good harvest.
4)Chitosan oligosaccharide can induce the disease resistance of plants, and have immune and killing effects on various fungi, bacteria and viruses, which have good prevention and cure effects on wheat mosaic disease, cotton verticillium wilt, rice blast and tomato late blight.
5)Chitosan Oligosaccharide has a certain degree of direct inhibitory effect on various plant pathogens.
