|Title:||Hydrocolloid-based Packaging Films — Alternate to Synthetic Plastics|
|Authors:||Tharanathan, Rudrapatnam N|
|Abstract:||An alternate approach to non-biodegradable synthetic plastics is packaging films based on hydrocolloids and their derivatives. They are available in plenty from highly renewable natural resources and their total biodegradability makes them ecofriendly. Blending as well as graft copolymerization of synthetic monomers onto natural polymers after additional means of preparing biodegradable packaging films.|
