Chemical physical analysis, photo-oxidative stability and lipid oxidation of innovative polymeric films based on blends of nylon 6 and ethylene-co-vinyl alcohol for use in food packaging have been investigated. Thermal mechanical analysis showed that the presence of an interfacial agent in the blend stabilized the films towards the action of permeants. Synergistic effects of the interfacial agent are reported with respect to UV photostability. Peroxide value (PV) was used to follow the oxidation of the olive oil, and for this parameter also the influence of the interfacial agent was clearly detected.
