Why is it important?

This work demonstrated the antimicrobial potential of extruded LDPE / AgNPs films, enabling their production as food packaging aimed at reducing the risks of microbial contamination and maintaining the quality of food products.


I hope this article will make it easier for the general public to understand the area of ​​nanotechnology, especially those in the biology area. In addition, this article has differentials, seen in a few articles in the area, such as antimicrobial analysis on extruded films, fungus analysis. and imaging procedure to visualize the deteriorating action of this technology on microorganisms.
