How degradable are biodegradable polymers in water?
from Advanced Science News
Plastic pollution is increasing dramatically. Plastic, a polymeric material, is in everyday use and has attracted increased attention as a large-scale pollutant. Large amounts of plastic in the sea, more than 2.5 million tons per year, come from land. One of the big questions society faces is the stability of polymers against chemicals, hydrolysis, temperature, light and microbes.
