2. Antimicrobial properties and permeability of Poly lactic Acid nanocomposite films containing Zinc Oxide

Mahya Shafiee Nasab; Mahsa Tabari

Volume 3, Issue 3 , Summer 2018, , Pages 125-132


  Objective(s): Since microbial contamination can reduce the shelf life of the foodstuff and there is a potential for the growth of some pathogen microorganisms, films containing antimicrobial agents were produced, which are also biodegradable. In this study, the effect of 1, 3 and 5% nano-zinc oxide ...  Read More
