Barrier properties of biopolymer

What is it about?

Barrier properties of biodegradable polymers are really important for food packaging. We showed boron nitride is helping to improve barrier properties of biodegradable bioplastic.

Why is it important?

To reduce theharmful environmental impact of synthetic polymers
