Recyclable Bioplastics Cooled Down, Cooked Up in Colorado State University Chem Lab

from Colorado State University

The textbooks and journals said it couldn’t be done, but Colorado State University chemists have done it. They’ve made a completely recyclable, biodegradable polymer, paving a potential new road to truly sustainable, petroleum-free plastics. The innovation is from the lab of Eugene Chen, professor of chemistry and recent recipient of the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge award. Publishing in Nature Chemistry Nov. 23, Chen and postdoctoral fellow Miao Hong describe synthesizing a polyester that, when simply reheated for an hour, converts back to its original molecular state, ready for reuse. more
