Chitosan (CHIT), a non-toxic, biocompatible, and biodegradable natural polymer finds tremendous commercial application in its native and modified form. In the recent years, considerable efforts have been devoted to fabricate CHIT based smart materials with adopting attractive approaches, for examples, the ability to alter texture in a controlled mode via external stimulus including stress, electric or magnetic fields, temperature, moisture and pH. In the chapter, we have discussed the recent studies of the preparation of CHIT based smart materials from their various perspectives with put their special attention in the field of medical diagnostic and treatments. The modifications are illustrated basically on the stimuli-responsive CHIT as molecular device materials, biomimetic materials, hybrid-type composite materials, functionalised polymers, supermolecular systems, information- and energy-transfer materials, environmentally friendly materials, etc. at synergetic levels along their striking applications in both strategic and civil sectors.
