In this work, nanocomposite low-density polyethylene films with carbon nanotube base were prepared by solution casting from boiling xylene. Fresh Mazafati dates were placed on the packages obtained from films and stored at ambient temperature. In addition, the fungal growth and sensory attributes were monitored on the 0th, 30th, 60th, and 90th days of storage. Although films containing carbon nanotube increased shelf life of Mazafati dates compared to controls, some of the characteristics of sensory were lost.
