Glycerol and oleic acid (OA) were incorporated into carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) films by an emulsification method. Films containing different amounts of glycerol and OA were examined for mechanical properties, water vapor permeability (WVP), and moisture uptake, optical and thermal properties. Addition of OA to the CMC films significantly improved the(More)
Novel citric acid (CA) modified starch-carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC)-montmorillonite (MMT) bionanocomposite films were prepared by casting method. X-ray diffraction (XRD) test showed that the 001 diffraction peak of nanoclay was shifted to lower angles in the bionanocomposites and it may be implied that the clay nanolayers formed an intercalated structure.(More)
PURPOSE Vitamin D, a liposoluble vitamin has many benefits on health. Encapsulation of bioactives in lipid-based carrier systems like nanoliposomes preserves their native properties against oxidation over time along with providing its stable aqueous dispersion. METHODS In the current study, vitamin D3 nanoliposomes were prepared using thin-film(More)
In this study, ternary potato starch (PS) bionanocomposite films containing two types of nanoparticles, sodium montmorillonite (MMT), one-dimensional (1D) clay platelets, (3 and 5wt%) and TiO2, three-dimensional (3D) nanospheres, (0.5, 1 and 2wt%), are prepared using solvent casting method. X-ray diffraction (XRD) test confirms the completely exfoliated(More)
Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) / starch (S) /Carboxy methyl cellulose (CMC) composite films were prepared from PVA, three different loading of CMC and soluble starch aqueous suspensions by casting method in the presence of plasticize containing glycerol. The effects of the CMC addition on the some physical properties of the resulted blend films were investigated.(More)
PURPOSE Nanostructured lipid carrier (NLC) is a useful delivery system with high capacity for bioactive loading, and suitable stability for fortification of foods and beverages. The objective of the present work is to prepare vitamin A palmitate (vitA)-loaded NLC and to investigate surfactant concentration effect on physicochemical properties of prepared(More)
Whey and zein protein are byproducts of the food industries and have good film making properties. Single and laminated films were produced from zein protein and whey protein and their film properties were studied. Glycerol and olive oil were used as plasticizer for the single and laminated films. The laminated films exhibited higher ultimate tensile(More)
Most materials currently used for food packaging are nondegradable, generating environmental problems. Several biopolymers have been exploited to develop materials for ecofriendly food packaging. However, the use of biopolymers has been limited because of their usually poor mechanical and barrier properties, which may be improved by adding reinforcing(More)
The focuses of this study were to investigate the effect of sodium montmorillonite clay (MMT-Na) content on the physical properties and extent of enzymatic hydrolysis Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA): Starch (S): Carboxymethyl Cellulose (CMC) nanocomposites using enzyme <alpha>-amylase. The results of this work have revealed that films with MMT-Na content at 5 wt%(More)
