Pectine met natuurlijke vetzuren als antimicrobieel middel

10 juni 2014

Researchers at the Institute of Biostructures and Bioimaging in Italy prepared pectin derivatives by chemical modifications of the polysaccharide with natural fatty acids. The obtained biodegradable materials were investigated for their antimicrobial activity. Good results were obtained for pectin-oleate and pectin-linoleate.
The pectin-oleate and the pectin-linoleate samples were coated on polyethylene films and were assessed for their capacity to capture the oxygen molecules. The results confirm a possible application in the field of active food packaging.
An article about the research is published in the International Journal of Biological Macromolecules.
