Sonochemistry for coatings

When ultrasonic waves collapse near a solid surface, microjets are being formed directed towards the solid surface. These microjets are moving at very high speeds. This phenomenon can be used forcoatings nanoparticles on metals, polymers, glasses, ceramics, textiles, and paper. Prof. Aharon Gedanken of Bar-Ilan University, Israel, explains the mechanism of sonochemistry and comments on thebenefits of this method.

Properties of a novel corn-zein coating structure

Biopolymers offer a noticeable potential of replacing conventional petroleum based polymers in food packaging materials. Protein based biopolymers including corn zein can be processed into films andform an excellent barrier to gases and a moderate barrier to water vapor. Dr. Funda Tihminlioglu, Izmir Institute of Technology, Turkey, explains her study of a novel corn-zein coating structure onpolypropylene films as an alternative water vapor and oxygen-barrier for flexible packaging.
