J.-M. Lagarón and M.A. Busolo,     Instituto de Agroquímica y Technología de Alimentos (IATA-CSIC), Spain

Abstract:

This chapter presents some recent developments in the area of active nanocomposites for food packaging applications. Active nanocomposites are advanced alternatives to conventional active plastic technologies or active sachets for the extension of the quality and safety of packaged food products. They are polymer blends that contain nanostructured materials which confer activity to the food packaging structures. The nanostructured materials are inserted into the packaging materials either by melt compounding or solvent casting. Examples detailing the development of highly ...
