Properties of a novel corn-zein coating structure

Friday, 20 August 2010

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.
