Inhibition of B. cinerea by alginate (Alg) / cajuput essential oil (Caj) at different concentration (0%, 0.25%, 0.5%, 0.75%) and the composite's surface properties were investigated. Among the samples, the treated spore with Caj 0.75% showed the lowest germination percentage and germ tube length. The regarded antifungal action was confirmed by observing the changes of membrane integrity stained with propidium iodide under fluorescence microscope. Moreover, the film composite roughness was characterized which Caj affected significantly (P < 0.05) on arithmetical mean high of Alg based film. Hence, the results of the present study suggest that Alg - Caj blended coating could be an alternative of natural coating agents applied on fruit or vegetable.
