Risultato della ricerca: Articlepeer review

8 Citazioni (Scopus)


In the last few decades, the interest towards natural compounds, coming from a naturalsource and biodegradable, for biopolymers is always increasing because of a public request for theformulation of safe, eco-friendly, and sustainable materials. The main classes of natural compoundsfor biopolymers are: (i) naturally occurring fillers (nFil), such as nano-/micro- sized layeredalumino-silicate: halloysite, bentonite, montmorillonite, hydroxyapatite, calcium carbonate, etc.; (ii)naturally occurring fibers (nFib), such as wood and vegetable fibers; (iii) naturally occurringantioxidant molecules (nAO), such as phenols, polyphenols, vitamins, and carotenoids. However,in this short review, the advantages and drawbacks, considering naturally occurring compounds assafe, eco-friendly, and sustainable additives for biopolymers, have been focused and discussedbriefly, even taking into account the requests and needs of different application fields.
