Recyclable, Sugar-Based Polyurethane Foam as Renewable Substitute to Conventional Ones

from AZoM

Reporting in the ACS Macro Letters journal, a team of researchers have devised an efficient technique to create a sugar-based rubbery polyester compound called poly (β-methyl-δ-valerolactone) or PMVL. This can be applied for use in new chemically-recyclable polyurethanes. The team then went on to produce flexible polyurethane foams using this unique polymer. These foams matched the performance of their commercial counterparts. more
