The aim of this work was to investigate a possibility of preparing composite zein/natural resin (shellac and rosin) nanoparticles by antisolvent co–precipitation from their aqueous ethanol solutions. Influence of zein/resin mass ratio (1/0, 0.8/0.2, 0.5/0.5, 0.4/0.6 and 0/1) and pH (2–12) on particle size, d, and zeta potential, z, of the prepared particles was studied. The func­tional properties of zein/rosin composite nanoparticles were evaluated by studying carvacrol encapsulation. It was… Expand

Interactions of zein and zein/rosin nanoparticles with natural polyanion gum arabic.
It was shown that composition of nanoparticles affects their surface charge density, and reaction between GA and Z or Z/R NPs is exothermic at each pH tested, except for Z NPs at pH = 3, where it was endothermic. Expand
