Abstract: AbstractBiodegradable films blends made of safflower oil nutraceutical capsules waste: corn starch (20:4, 30:4, 40:4 and 50:4) were prepared. The objective of this study was to evaluate the influence of addition of different concentrations of safflower oil nutraceutical capsule waste in the mechanical properties (tensile strength, elongation at break, Young's modulus) and thickness of corn starch films. A decrease in tensile strength and Young's modulus and an increase in elongation at break were observed wi…
