Shortcut to carbon dioxide plastics holds sequestration promise
from Chemistry World
Japanese scientists have cleared a significant hurdle in using carbon dioxide as a chemical feedstock and made a polymer that contains almost a third of the gas by weight. The team discovered a way to make the reaction conditions for the addition of carbon dioxide to an olefin more favorable, which they claim could make the large-scale production of carbon dioxide-based plastics possible.
