Abstract

Quercetin, rutin, naringin, hesperidin and chrysin were tested as substrates for cloroperoxidase to produce reactive quinones to graft onto chitosan. Quercetin and rutin quinones were successfully chemically attached to low molecular weight chitosan. The quercetin-modified chitosan showed an enhancement of plastic, antioxidant and antimicrobial properties as well as of thermal degradability. Finally, chitosan-quercetin films visibly decreased enzymatic oxidation when applied to Opuntia ficus indica cladodes.
