Bio-based Materials: Past to Future
The research related to biomaterial is just in its early step, but yet promising and enhanced chemical branch and methods are continuously being innovated along with the different publication in its fields in the upcoming years. The nanomaterial possessing low-dimensional and 3D structure competes with the challenges with the other biomaterials and enhances its application in different areas. In the present chapter, various methods for producing the biomaterial and constructing its derivatives needed for the food packaging are forwarded. In this context, the future aspect and the limitation to overcome the situation are briefly explained. It is believed that an extensive study related to the biomaterials will still explore in the upcoming years.
