Abstract

The use of new biomaterials for medical and packaging application has increased rapidly over the past quarter of a century. Biofilms and biopolymers have been studied with the target uses of packaging and coatings for foodstuffs as well as for biomedical applications. Therefore, there is a need for a better understanding of the interactions between biomaterials and functional inks, which is required to optimize printability, mechanical, and functional properties for the creation of more robust and efficient printed devices and smart packaging. This research aims to advance the knowledge of the material properties of hemicellulose-based biofilms, their interactions with conductive inks, and gravure printability.
