Quality and safety of the cold chain undergo strict international regulations that identify storage and shipping temperatures. In fact, the improper handling and transportation of temperature-sensitive products such as food and pharmaceuticals may have harmful effects on human health and negative economic impact. A passive RFID tag modified with copper-droped ionic liquid melting point, which can be tuned by changing the concentration of dopant.
