Clay-filled starch films. Part I: Effect of clay kind and glycerol concentration on functional properties of composites
The aim of this work was to improve the mechanical and water barrier properties of composite ﬁlmsprepared from starch and clays, plasticized with glycerol at different concentrations. The effects ofhydrophilic Closite Naþand Nanomer PGV were compared with that exerted by organicallymodiﬁedmorehydrophobicNanoﬁl2 and NanoBent ZR-1. The antimicrobial activity of compositescontaining hydrophobic clays was also investigated. The hydrophilic...
Fish gelatin-nanoclay films. Part I: Effect of a kind of nanoclays and glycerol concentration on mechanical and water barrier properties of nanocomposites
The aim of work was the improvement of the mechanical and water barrier properties of nanocomposites prepared from fish gelatin and nanoclays (5–15%), plasticized with glycerol at different concentrations. The effect of hydrophilic Cloisite Na1 and Nanomer®PGV was compared with that exerted by organically modified more hydrophobic Nanofil®2 and NanoBent ZR-1. Antimicrobial activity of nanocomposites containing hydrophobic nanoclays...
The antimicrobial properties of chitosan solutions and films against selected bacteria and the effect of chitosan incorporation into gelatin films were studied. The bactericidal effect of chitosan solutions increased with time and temperature of sample incubation. Two psychrotrophic strains Pseudomonas fluorescens and Listeria innocua were more sensitive to chitosan than mesophilic strains Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus....
