The development and engineerization of polymeric films is of particular interest in the field of systems for the controlled release of bioactive substances, with possible repercussions on different application areas. Specifically, these systems can find application in pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food industries. The aim of this project is the development of biocompatible and biodegradable systems for the controlled release of naturally occurring antioxidant substances. Such systems will be based on biopolymer hydrogels, obtained by ionotropic gelation, or polymeric membranes, obtained by electrospinning technique. The developed systems will be characterized by a morphological, mechanical and functional point of view
