As part of COST Action FA0904 "Eco-sustainable food packaging based on polymer nanomaterials" a two-day International Workshop "Novel nanostructured polymeric materials for food packaging and beyond" was organized related to Working Group (WG) 1 of this Action. The main goal of WG 1 (Development of new safe PNFP) was to consider new polymer nanomaterials for food packaging - also for other applications - and breakthroughs and knowledge leading to new features gained through nanotechnology. The topics covered by WG 1 included e.g.: * Selection, synthesis, production of matrix, nanoparticles and -devices, * Surface functionalization and chemical treatments of nanoparticles, * Link between nanostructures and macroscopic properties, * Characterization and measurement tools.
