Preparation and characterization of poly(ethylene terephthalate) ﬁlms coated by chitosan and vermiculite nanoclay
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
Chitosan (CS) layers are coated on a poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) film in order to decrease the oxygen permeability through the polymeric films for food packaging applications. Oxygen transmission rate (OTR) of the 130 μm PET films can be decreased from 11 to only 0.31 cm3/m².day with a coated layer of 2 μm of CS. Additional decrease is obtained with the addition of vermiculite (VMT) to CS matrix in high proportion (40 to 50 w/w%). The OTR of the coated PET films decreased to very low values, below the detection limit of commercial instrumentation (≤0.008 cm3/m2 day). This high-barrier behavior is believed to be due to the brick wall nanostructure, which produces an extremely tortuous path for oxygen molecules.
