Toward an enzyme-based oxygen scavenging laminate. Influence of industrial lamination conditions on the performance of glucose oxidase

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The laminate consisted of several polymer layers, aluminium, and one cellulose-based layer containing the active enzymatic system (e.g., glucose oxidase, catalase, glucose, and CaCO3). During the industrial lamination process, the enzyme layer was exposed to three temperature spikes up to 325degreesC without significant enzyme inactivation. Ninety-seven percent of the glucose oxidase activity still remained after the lamination process. The best laminate had an oxygen absorbing capacity of 7.6 +/- 1.0 L/m(2). A reference that was not laminated expressed a corresponding oxygen absorbing capacity of 7.1 +/- 0.8 L/m(2).
