The Introduction of the Special Issue

This special issue focus on recycle of Plastic waste and subsequently used for packaging material .


The Research Scope of the Special Issue

· polymer nanocomposites can find numerous applications in the food processing industries .

· A new system of unsaturated polyester nanocomposite depending upon fabrication method can be nvestigated for the sorption and diffusion studies .

· montmorillonite filled unsaturated polyester nanocomposite derived from PET can be studied in various acidic medium for food packaging application point of view.

· the state of the art of the main technology which allows us to recycle PET for value-added products.

· Thermal and mechanical characterization of the MMT-filled nanocomposites helped to establish criteria for the selection of materials for specific use.
