Intelligente foodverpakking met versheidsindicator wint prijs

09 december 2014

The Mainz chemistry professor Katja Heinze and her Luxembourg cooperation partner Dr. Patrick Choquet have received the Interregional Research Award for the development of novel, intelligent films for food packaging within the SURFAMINE research project. The aim was to develop a form of food packaging that would display real-time information on the status of the packaged items.
The researchers designed, synthesized, and employed novel dyes to give the films their color. These colors change on interaction with amines that are released when the packaged foodstuffs undergo bacterial decomposition and thus show how fresh the foodstuffs are (Persbericht Mainz University, 5 december 2014).
