Degradable sugar-based polymers may store and release useful molecular freight — ScienceDaily

Degradable, bio-based polymers offer options for chemical recycling, and they can be a tool to store and release useful molecules. Scientists have developed a class of sugar-based polymers that are degradable through acid hydrolysis. The researchers also integrated “cargo” molecules in the polymer, which are designed to split off after polymer degradation. Degradable, cargo-bearing polymers […]
