Polymers easily decompose when subjected to high temperatures or UV light. To prevent polymers from undergoing thermolytic or photolytic disintegration, antioxidants are added to improve their weather resistance throughout the year and to ensure the shelf life of polymer products.

Plastic antioxidants are generally divided into four types: phenolics, phosphite and phosphonite, antioxidant mixtures and others.

Plastic polymer is a widely used material for food storage and protection due to the various advantages it offers, such as low production cost, good strength, content protection and reduced environmental impact. However, to improve and preserve the qualities of the polymer, additives such as antioxidants, ultraviolet (UV) stabilizers, antistatic agents, plasticizers, lubricants, thermal stabilizers, photoinitiators and others are added during the process of manufacturing.

However, there is growing concern that when plastic packaging encounters food, these additives could migrate into the food during the production or storage stages and affect the health of consumers. To study this, a number of toxicological tests
studies and reports on the genotoxicity of polymer additives have been carried out. Therefore, when assessing the safety of food packaging materials to manage food quality, it has become essential not only to determine the concentrations of these additives in polymers, but also to monitor their quantification and levels. specific migration procedures (SML).

Antioxidants, UV stabilizers, plasticizers, and photoinitiators are just some of the many polymer additives found in plastic. Nowadays, plastic plays an important role in society.

Thus, antioxidant polymer additives, UV stabilizers and photoinitiators have received increased attention, especially in the field of food safety.

Antioxidants are natural and manufactured substances that can scavenge free radicals and inhibit the oxidation process. Phenolic antioxidants (AO), often referred to as primary antioxidants, are very effective, non-bleaching stabilizers for oxidizable organic substrates such as plastics, man-made fibers, elastomers and waxes.

Phenolic compounds are generally used to protect the finished product by acting as free radical scavengers.

Phosphite antioxidants, also known as secondary antioxidants, work as peroxide decomposers, preserving the polymer and ensuring color preservation in organic polymers prone to oxidation, especially during processing.

Thioester antioxidants degrade and neutralize hydroperoxides produced by the oxidation of polymers. Thioesters are used to prevent thermal aging and preserve color.

Amino antioxidants help preserve physical and surface qualities such as color, scorch and heat resistance.

Binary blends combine a primary antioxidant (phenolic) with a secondary antioxidant (phosphite) for maximum stability throughout processing and shelf life.
