Abstract: In the food packaging sector, the potential of nanotechnology is actively explored including active packaging. The transformation of active compounds from micro to nanoscale offers thereby a new opportunity. In this chapter, the role of nanotechnology in active packaging is described and a wide range of nanomaterials providing active functions to food packaging are presented. Thereby, the focus is set on nanomaterials which are not “nano” by nature, such as metals and metal oxides, but are applied at nanoscale to provide/enhance active functions. Special emphasis is given to inorganic nanoparticles expressing antimicrobial activities. The potential application of nano-carriers containing bioactive substances for antimicrobial packaging is also addressed. Furthermore, oxygen- and ethylene-scavenging systems based on active nanomaterials are presented.
