Natural Anti-oxidants for Bio-polymeric Materials

Risultato della ricerca: Articlepeer review


In this work, three different bio-polymers, i.e. a commercial starch-based polymer (Mater-Bi®) a bio-polyester (PLA), and a bio-polyether (PEO) were additivated with quercetin, A natural flavonoid antioxidants, in order to formulate biobased filmsfor eco-sustainable packaging and outdoor applications.The photo-oxidation behavior of unstabilized and quercetin stabilized films has been evaluated and compared with that of films additivated with a commercialSynthetic light stabilizer. Obtained results show that quercetin molecules are able to slow down the photodegradation rate of all investigated bio-polymeric films,opening new avenues in the formulation of fully renewable polymer-based systems.
