Development of curcumin incorporated composite films based on chitin and glucan complexes extracted from Agaricus bisporus for active packaging of chicken breast meat

Composite films were prepared by combining different concentrations of curcumin with chitin and glucan complexes (CGCs) extracted from Agaricus bisporus via a solution casting method. The developed curcumin doped CGC (CGC/Cu) films were characterized in terms of surface, optical, structural, barrier, mechanical, antioxidant, and antimicrobial properties. The biodegradability of CGC/Cu films was determined in soil for 14 days. The incorporation of curcumin significantly affected the surface morphology and improved light barrier properties, radical scavenging activity, and total phenolic content of the films. The CGC/Cu films containing different concentrations of curcumin showed antibacterial activity against Escherichia coli, while antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus was not observed with the developed films. Afterward, the microbial properties of the fresh chicken breast were examined during refrigerated storage for 10 days. The shelf-life of chicken samples wrapped in the developed film was extended at least 40 % compared to the control sample. In conclusion, curcumin incorporated CGC based films can serve as a promising biodegradable active packaging material to improve the shelf-life of meat products.

Bet-Moushoul, Elsie; Farhadi, Khalil; Mansourpanah, Yaghoub; Molaie, Rahim; Forough, Mehrdad; Nikbakht, Ali Mohammad (2016-07-01)
Ag/bauxite nanocomposites have been prepared using in situ reduction of aqueous AgNO3 solution in a bauxite matrix and investigated for the transesterification of sunflower oil with methanol in order to study their potential as heterogeneous catalysts. The prepared nanocopmosites were characterized by XRD, SEM, EDX, FT-IR, and TG- DTA. The Central Composite Design of the Response Surface Methodology was used to optimize the effect of reaction temperature, reaction time, catalyst loading and methanol to oil ...
Development of porous chitosan-gelatin/hydroxyapatite composite scaffolds for hard tissue-engineering applications
Isikli, C.; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat; Hasırcı, Nesrin (2012-02-01)
Composite scaffolds prepared from natural polymers and hydroxyapatite (HA) are expected to have enhanced osteoconductive properties and as a result gained much attention in recent years for use in bone tissue-engineering applications. Although there are various natural polymers available for this purpose, chitosan (C) and gelatin (G) are commonly studied because of their inherent properties. The aim of this study was to prepare three-dimensional (3D) scaffolds using these two natural polymers and to add eit...

In the current study, an in-situ oxidative polymerization method was used to synthesize polyaniline-coated tungsten trioxide biphasic composite (PANI@WO3). The as-developed composite material properties were elucidated using different characterization tools such as X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), N2 sorption-desorption isotherm, and X-ray photoelect...
Development of alumina supported ternary mixed matrix membranes for separation of H-2/light-alkane mixtures
Topuz, Berna; Yılmaz, Levent; Kalıpçılar, Halil (2012-10-01)
Ternary component mixed matrix membrane was prepared from PES, SAPO-34 and 2-hydroxy 5-methyl aniline on a macroporous alumina disk by the solvent evaporation method in order to investigate the effect of existence of an inorganic support. The membrane and its pure PES/Alumina counterpart were characterized by single gas permeability measurements of H-2, CH4, C2H6 and C3H8. The corresponding H-2/CH4 selectivities of membranes were 71.3 and 41. The membranes were also used to separate equimolar mixtures of H-...
Development of enhanced ultrafiltration methodologies for the resolution of racemic benzoin
Olceroglu, Ayse Hande; Çalık, Pınar; Yılmaz, Levent (Elsevier BV, 2008-09-15)
In the scope of achieving the separation of chiral molecules, enzyme enhanced ultrafiltration (EEUF), a new method based on polymer enhanced ultrafiltration (PEUF), utilizing apoenzymes as ligands, was developed. Benzoin was chosen as the model chiral molecule. Bovine serum albumin (BSA) and apo form of benzaldehyde lyase (BAL) (E.C. were used as chiral ligands in PEUF and EEUF experiments, respectively. In order to bind to the target enantiomer well, the addition of ligand to the benzoin solution...
