Knowledge of the the kinetic study of chitosan/genipin allow to know the different effects that time and temperature have on the cure reaction of the material. The total enthalpy of reaction, the glass transition temperature and the partial enthalpies have been determined using DSC in dynamic mode. Two models, one based on chemical kinetics and the other accounting for diffusion were used. The incorporation of the diffusion factor in the second model allowed for the cure kinetics to be predicted the whole range of conversion.
