Using biodegradable polymers are one the best solutions to overcome the pollution of the environment by Petroleum-based polymers. Biopolymers as environmental friendly packaging materials were studied extensively. The aim of this research was to study the properties of the bionanocomposites of alyssumm homolocarpum seed gum reinforced with nano zinc oxide (1, 3 and 5%). Functional properties such as water content, water solubility and water vapor permeability were significantly decreased by incorporation of nano particles. Also, most of the UV light was adsorbed at 5% of nano particles. Tensile strength and Young module were increased and elongation at break was decreased. The anti-microbial effect was tested against E. coli using agar diffusion method and this effect was increased by increasing the nano particle contents. The obtained results suggest that nanobiocomposites based on nano zinc oxide and alyssumm homolocarpum seed gum has the potential to use as an active packaging material for packaging industries.
