Effects of organo-modified clay addition and temperature on the water vapor barrier properties of polyhydroxy butyrate homo and copolymer nanocomposite films for packaging applications
Polymer nanocomposites, based on bacterial biodegradable thermoplastic polyester, poly(hydroxy-butyrate) (PHB), poly(hydroxyl-butyrate-co-hydroxy-valerate) (PHBHV), and commercial organo-modified montmorillonite (OMMT-Cloisite ...
Water vapor and oxygen-barrier performance of corn-zein coated polypropylene films
A novel corn-zein coating structure on polypropylene (PP) films was developed to examine its feasibility as an alternative water vapor and oxygen-barrier for flexible packaging industry. The barrier properties of the ...
Preparation and barrier properties of chitosan-layered silicate nanocomposite films
(Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2010-12)
In this study, chitosan nanocomposite films were prepared using a solvent-casting method by incorporation of an organically modified montmorillonite (Cloisite 10A). The effect of filler concentration on the water vapor ...
