Packaging Nanotechnology summarizes new developments and the role of nanotechnology in the area of packaging science and technology. There has been a great progress in the field of packaging nanotechnology which impacts every field of science as well as in our daily life. The nanoscale materials play a very important role in the packaging of electronic and photonic devices to packaging of health products to foods. The applications of nanomaterials in packaging technology have been a topic of current scientific studies and curiosity. This book summarizes latest developments in the field of packaging nanotechnology. The intended research areas of coverage for this book quite broad which include polymer-clay nanocomposites for foods and pharmaceutical packaging, traditional plastic (PP, PE, nylon, PET, EVOH, etc.) based nanocomposites for packaging, green polymer (PLA, PHAs, starch, etc.) based nanocomposites for packaging, nanotechnology in printing, nanotechnology in coating, nanotechnology in electronics, optoelectronics, and photonics packaging, low and high- materials for micro- and nano-electronics packaging, nanotechnology in supply chain/security, nanotechnology in paper-based packaging, social and environmental impacts of nanotechnology in packaging, life cycle analysis and economical feasibility of nanocomposites in barrier packaging market. Descriptions on various nanoparticles, other nanostructured materials and their roles in different aspects of packaging (high barrier/scratch resistance/UV radiation absorbers, etc) are also targeted to be covered.
This book provides a comprehensive coverage of many aspects of packaging nanotechnology from science to engineering to medicine to food science. The research topics include synthesis, processing, fabrication, spectroscopic characterization, properties and applications of nanomaterials in packaging science and technology. The coverage include melt processing, polymer/montmorillonite layered silicates, nanocomposites films for food packaging, transport properties of polymer/layer fillers nanocomposites, semiaromatic polyester/layered silicate nanocomposite materials, nanocomposites of polyolefin, nylon nanocomposites, microcellular polymer nanocomposites, bio-nanotechnology in biopackaging, starch nanocomposites, proteinous nanomaterials silver nanocomposites for antimicrobial packaging, the use of nanotechnology to improve the performance of plant oil-based coatings for military use and applications in packaging, nanomaterial enhanced scaffolds for tissue engineering, commercial development of nanocomposite packaging, environmental and social impacts of nanotechnology in packaging.
This book contains fourteen state-of-the-art review chapters written by fifty-five leading experts in the field as well as over two thousand references, hundreds of figures, tables, chemical structures and equations.
