Abstract
Herein, we have fabricated a highly transparent, flexible and re-emissive polyvinyl alcohol/waste tea residue carbon dots (PVA@WTR-CDs) composite thin films by simple solvent casting method. Incorporated WTR-CDs as a function of UV blocking (absorption of UV light and re-emission in the visible region) agent synthesized from waste tea residue powder as a sustainable material. The results revealed that, the WTR-CDs have the best compatibility with PVA. The incorporated fluorescent WTR-CDs impart fluorescence to the whole film and films are capable to not only block the UV region but also re-emit absorbed UV light into the visible region. The increased concentrations of WTR-CDs into PVA films enhances the UV blocking capability of the composite films. The composite, PVA@WTR-CDs-3 films were succeeded to block full (100%) of UV-C (230 - 280 nm) and UV-B (280 - 315 nm) region, while 20- 60% of UV-A (315 - 400 nm). We achieved the maximum of UV blocking by PVA@WTR-CDs-5 composite films by controlling the transparency and thickness. By the successive addition of the UV blocking agent, there was no extreme changes observed in the intrinsic mechanical as well as tensile properties of PVA films. The thermal analysis study showed that, there was no adverse effect of WTR-CDs incorporation on the thermal stability and degradation profile of original PVA films. In detail, the possible mechanism of UV absorption and re-emission in the visible region by fabricated films is also discussed. Furthermore, practicability of the composite film was also investigated on a model (grape) fruit and thus can be used as a modern UV blocking material in packaging, pharmaceutical storage, wrapping, and coating etc.
