Abstract

This study reports for the first time optical detection of oxygen in an ultra-low cost plastic MicroCapillary Film (MCF) material. Fluoropolymer MCFs were faster to respond to changes in oxygen composition in the head space compared to MCF manufactured from polyolefins, yet the low cost of MCFs extruded from polyolefins is attractive for industrial applications in smart packaging.
