Abstract


This study presents the data summary on growth speed of selected species of fungi on some of biodegradable polymer materials. Growth speed was assessed on films composed of poly(lactide), poly(ε-caprolactone) and poly(hydroxybutyrate) after a month of incubation in 24oC. To assess growth of fungi optical microscopy on densitometric measurements were used. Through these analyses the best growth was confirmed for fungus: Chaetomium globosum (ATTC 6205) on a film made of poly(ε -caprolactone).


Keywords
