Introduces and consolidates information upon which active packaging concepts are based. This book offers scientists, technologists, students and regulators the basis of those active packaging materials, which are either commercial or proposed.



Scientists, technologists, students and regulators will find here the basis of those active packaging materials, which are either commercial or proposed. The book should assist the inquirer to understand how other concepts might be applied or where they should be rejected.
