The main objective of this study was to enhance functional packaging properties of pectin film
by using zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO-NPs) as nanoreinforcing agent. Pectin/ZnO
bio-nanocomposite films were fabricated at 4 levels of ZnO-NPs, i.e., 0.5, 1.0, 2.0 and 5.0%
(w/w). The effects of ZnO-NPs incorporation on improving the mechanical properties and water
resistance of the films were investigated. ZnO-NPs were successfully incorporated into pectin
films by nanodispersion technique followed by casting method. The presence of ZnO-NPs inside
pectin films was observed clearly by SEM. The improvement in tensile strength could be
achieved with ZnO-NPs incorporation without obvious loss in elasticity. Potential antimicrobial
activity of pectin-ZnO nanocomposite films was proved in the absence of mold after exposing
them at 97% RH and room temperature for 14 days, whereas the growth of mold had been
observed in pure pectin film after 3 days of exposure. In terms of film transparency, the
significant change in film opacity was only found in the film prepared with 5% of ZnO. Results
suggested that it would be favorable to prepare pectin/ZnO nanocomposite film by using
ZnO-NPs at the amount of 2% (w/w) in the future work.
