À propos de cet article


New fragrant and biodegradable starch-based films have been obtained. These films were prepared by the method of the outpour into the Teflon mould of the starch composition containing such fragrant compounds as: eugenol or α-pinene. For characterizing the final products the following properties were taken into account: the solubility in water, the absorbance of moisture from air and the length of release of the fragrant compound. The obtained starch-based films were characterized by the relatively long time of release the fragrant compound and also by the good absorbance of moisture from air. Taking into account the properties of the obtained films, they can find applications in production of appliances used in the bioactive cleaning of air. The prototype of such a product was presented in this work. The presented studies show the potential of applying these materials in the future, and thus these examinations should be developed.
