  • V. P. Varlamov


Data on the effect of biologically active compounds introduced into chitosan-based films (polyphenols, natural extracts from plants and proteins and peptides) on their antimicrobial, antioxidant and fungicidal activity are summarized and analyzed. It was shown that composite films reveal higher antimicrobial activity than films containing only chitosan, and they also retain their mechanical and protective properties.
