Preparation of coating solutions
Chitosan solution was prepared with 2 % (w/v) chitosan in 1% (v/v) acetic acid glacial. The solution was placed on a hot plate/magnetic stirrer for 6 h. The resultant chitosan-based coating solution was filtrated, through a Whatman filter paper No: 2, glycerol was added at 0.75 % (w/v), and stirred for more than 15 minutes. Two of the best concentrations, 60 and 90 mg mL−1 were prepared from freeze-dried IgY for S. putrefaciens and P. fluorescens respectively. After centrifugation (10000 ×g) for 30 min, the supernatant was collected and sterilized by filtrating, through a 0.22 µm micro-filter. Finally, IgY was added to chitosan-based coating solution. The final coating solution was homogenized under aseptic

Treated fillets were dried at 4 °C for 5 hours under aseptic conditions, and were placed in zip bags and kept in the refrigerator for 16 days (Ojagh, Rezaei, Razavi, and Hosseini 2010) (Table 1). Total fat was extracted, according to Bligh and Dyer on days 0, 4, 8, 12 and 16 of refrigerated storage (Bligh and Dyer 1959). Antioxidant evaluation of lycopene solutions by DPPH method
DPPH solution in methanol (24 mg mL-1) was prepared and 2 mL of this solution were added to 50 μL of different concentrations of lycopene. After one-hour incubation at room temperature in the dark, absorbance at 517 nm was measured, using a spectrophotometer (Pharmacia LKB Novaspec, Sweden) (Aminzare, Aliakbarlu, and Tajik 2015). Scavenging capacity of lycopene was calculated as follows:
(Radical Scavenging Activity) RSA% = [(Ablank - ASample ) / Ablank]×100
Free fatty acids (FFA)

Fat was dissolved in 25 mL of the solvent (a mixture of chloroform and acetic acid). Then, 1 mL of saturated solution of potassium iodine was added, and kept in a dark environment for 10 minutes. After this time, 20 mL of distilled water and 1mL of starch solution (1.5%) were added.
The sample was titrated by 0.01 N Na2S2O3, until disappearance of the blue color. The amount of peroxide was calculated, using the following equation (Harold, Kirk, and Swayer 1981).
PV = (1000 (푉1-푉2) 푁) / V1
V1: volume of sodium thiosulfate solution, V2 volume of sodium thiosulfate, W: weight, N: normality of sodium thiosulfate solution
TBA Measurement
0.2 g of fat was mixed with 1 mL of BHT and 35 mL of C2HCl3O2. Then 100 mL of distilled water was added, 50 mL of distilled samples was collected to mix with 5 mL of TBA, and was placed for 1 hour in the water bath. The absorbance of the samples was measured at 532 nm, using a spectrophotometer (Pikul, Leszczynski, and Kummerow 1989).
TBA value = (Asample−Ablank)×50/200 PH

    A stir bar was added into the flask containing isoborneol, and the flask was attached to a ring stand to rest on top of a magnetic stirrer device. In consistent drops, 0.63 mL of glacial acetic was added and the reaction had a pH of 2, which was measured with pH indicator paper. Then, 0.50 mL of 10% w/v sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) solution was added, and the reagents were reacted for three minutes. Shortly after, 5.13 mL of 10% w/v NaOCl was added incrementally with a Pasteur pipet for about ten minutes. A thermocouple was periodically placed on the outside of the flask to make sure that the mixture did not reach past 50 °C.…

    The ter-polymerization solution was left for 24 hr at room temperature to complete the polycondensation reaction. Ammonia solution, 10 mL of 33 % NH4OH diluted by 20 mL of distilled water, was added drop wisely until a deep brown precipitate was produced. The filtered precipitate (EB) was washed with sufficient amount of deionized water then washed by ethanol to remove residual oxidant, unreacted monomer and oligomer until the filtrate became colorless and oven dried at 60 °C for overnight. The deep brown dried powder produces PANI-AA-o-PDA (PAAAPDAK1). The gained terpolymer yield was calculated to be 88.3 % utilizing the subsequent compatible…
