Abstract A technique of combining poly(ethylene-co-methacrylic acid), PEMA, with benzoic acid and sorbic acid to form antimicrobial food packaging material was developed. Heat-pressed film was first modified with NaOH (1 mol/L) or HCl (1 mol/L) and then incorporated with benzoic acid and sorbic acid, respectively, by using acetone as a swelling agent. The incorporation of preservatives into fabricated antimicrobial films was confirmed by characterization of the specific vibrational stretching… CONTINUE READING
