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 ...
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 ...
Microcalorimetric investigation of water vapor adsorption on silica gel
Water vapor adsorption on silica gel was investigated using Tian-Calvet-type microcalorimetry. Differential heat of adsorption data was obtained. The setup of microcalorimetry was used volumetric system to determine ...
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 ...
The effect of HCl treatment on water vapor adsorption characteristics of clinoptilolite rich natural zeolite
In this study, water vapor adsorption properties of the clinoptilolite rich zeolite tuff, from Bigadic (Turkey), and its modified forms were examined. The modified forms were obtained by treating the tuff with HCl solutions ...
