Scientists Develop New Film That May Finally Neutralize Odors of Pungent Food

Lennart Bergstrom and colleagues wanted to come up with a better packaging solution and have now developed a new film that could finally neutralize the odors of even the most pungent fare. The researchers developed a film out of zeolites, which are microporous solids containing aluminum and silicon, and cellulose from wood.

Testing the material showed that it could trap the sulfur-containing compounds often responsible for bad food smells. This adsorption reduced odors to levels below what humans can sniff out.

The report is published in the journal ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces.
