In this paper, we presented an overview of barrier properties and processing of bio-based polymers/composites as a replacement for petroleum-based paper coatings. In particular, recent nanotechnological advancements in the formulation of fully bio-based nanocomposite coatings are summarized, including the use of biopolymer nanoparticles, or nanofillers such as nanoclay and nanocellulose to achieve specific barrier functionalities. Different paper coating techniques are also discussed. View this paper.
