Sammanfattning

We demonstrate fabrication of ultraviolet (UV) light activated colorimetric oxygen indicators on paper and plastic substrates. Such inexpensive and non-toxic oxygen indicator and production method can find applications as a very low-cost leakage indicator for modified atmosphere packages (MAPs) by printing the material directly or gluing the pre-printed indicator label inside the lid. The introduction of leakage indicators onto all MAPs could result in improved food safety and reduced food spoilage.
