Release Of Clo2 Gas From Produce Packaging Film
WARF: P150239US04

Inventors: Nicholas Abbott, Rishabh Jain, Kevin Nelson, David Busche, David Lynn

The Invention
A multilayer produce packaging film includes a first layer and a chlorine dioxide-producing layer. The chlorine dioxide-producing layer includes a polymer composition and a plurality of chlorite ions. The chlorine dioxide-producing layer is substantially free of an energy-activated catalyst and is substantially free of an acid-releasing compound. However, the film is capable of generating chlorine dioxide when exposed to UV light and moisture.
