Abstract

DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION OF POLYMERIC PLANTDERIVED EXCIPIENTS BASED COMPOSITE BIODEGRADABLE FILM FOR PHARMACEUTICAL/FOOD PACKAGING APPLICATIONS

Bawankule S. R.*, Hingole D. S., Patil A. T. and Umekar M. J.

ABSTRACT

Utilization of plastics as packaging material has to be controlled to protect environment. A supporting pollution free environment can be created by use of eco-friendly packaging. Consequently, the idea of biodegradability has the benefits of both user-friendly and eco-friendly features. There are various packaging materials to pack different dosage forms. Starches are widely used as eco-friendly packaging material, as it is from natural resources. Biopolymers have been considered as the most promising materials for this purpose. Use of natural biopolymers for diversified applications in life sciences has several advantages, such as availability from replenishable agricultural or marine food resources, biocompatibility, biodegradability, therefore leading to ecological safety and the possibility of preparing a variety of chemically or enzymatically modified derivatives for specific end uses. So the present study aimed to find out suitable bio plastic solutions beside the petroleum based plastics. For environmental reasons; both pharmaceutical industry and food industry, would like to use biodegradable materials but these have to fulfill the requirements and the costs has to be in a reasonable range.

Keywords: Plasticizer, Biodegradable, Biopolymers, Films, Additives.
