Antimicrobial paper obtained by dip-coating with modified guanidine-based particle aqueous dispersion

Antimicrobial paper obtained by dip-coating with modified guanidine-based particle aqueous... Nonbiodegradable features and the lack of antimicrobial activity for conventional synthetic polymer-based packaging materials remain as extensive concerns for environmental issues and food safety. In this work, an antimicrobial copolymer PHGH–PPGDE was synthesized via a reaction between polyhexamethylene guanidine hydrochloride (PHGH) and poly(propylene glycol)diglycidyl ether (PPGDE). The obtained PHGH–PPGDE was amphiphilic, antimicrobial and reactive due to the terminal reactive group. The TEM images indicated that PHGH–PPGDE formed aggregated particles dispersed in water. The antimicrobial paper was conveniently prepared by dip-coating a paper matrix in the PHGH–PPGDE aqueous dispersion, or mixing the dispersion with pulp. The resultant paper showed excellent antimicrobial activities against Escherichia coli and improved durability for the nonleaching effect. Cellulose Springer Journals
