Physical and structural characterisation of zein and chitosan edible films using nanotechnology tools.

Abstract

The use of composite edible films made from biopolymers has attracted interest as a way to reduce pollution and recycling problems; however, the relation between barrier, mechanical and structural properties of the films have been scarcely studied. The aim of this work was to evaluate composite zein-chitosan edible films by applying common nanotechnology… (More)
