Hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose (HPMC) based hybrid nanocomposites reinforced with bacterial cellulose nanocrystals (BCNC) and silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) had been prepared and characterised. BCNC was capable of improving the tensile strength and modulus of HPMC, but they made the film more brittle. The addition of AgNPs along with BCNC, helped to regain(More)
The blends were prepared of virgin coconut oil with refined soyabean oil (VCO-RSOY) and refined safflower oil (VCO-RSAFF). Blending with VCO improved the fatty acid composition which increased the shelf stability of 20:80 VCO-RSOY and VCO-RSAFF up to 12 months in different packaging systems such as low density polyethylene, linear low density polyethylene,(More)
Water-dispersible aminoclay synthesized in a single step process was used as an inorganic filler for preparing polyvinyl alcohol (PVA)-clay hybrid films. The PVA-clay hybrid films with different weight percentages of aminoclay were obtained by simple mixing and casting of aqueous solutions of clay and polymer. The composite films show excellent retention of(More)
