Bio-active nanocomposite films based on nanocrystalline cellulose reinforced styrylquinoxalin-grafted-chitosan: Antibacterial and mechanical properties



Bio-active nanocomposite films based on nanocrystalline cellulose reinforced styrylquinoxalin-grafted-chitosan: Antibacterial and mechanical properties



International Journal of Biological Macromolecules 114: 733-740



In this study, active nanocomposite films based on cellulose nanocrystalline (NCC) reinforced styrylquinoxalin-grafted-chitosan are prepared by solvent-casting process. The structures of the two styrylquinoxaline derivatives were confirmed by FT-IR, 1H, 13C NMR spectral data and the study of the antibacterial activity against Escherichia coli (EC), Staphylococcus aureus (SA), Bacillus subtilis (BS) and Pseudomonas Aeruginosa (PA) exhibits that they have a good antibacterial activity against (PA). On their side, the styrylquinoxalin-g-chitosan films are able to inhibit the growth of (PA) through their contact area without being damaged by the antibacterial test conditions. The addition of 5wt% of NCCs as nano-reinforcements revealed no change at the level of antibacterial activity but led to an important improvement of the mechanical properties (more than 60% and 90% improvement in Young's modulus and tensile strength, respectively) of the modified-chitosan films. Thereby, the present nanocomposite films are prepared by a simple way and featured by good mechanical and antibacterial properties which enhance the possibility to use them as bio-based products for biomedical and food packaging.
