  • The successful production of novel biodegradable plastic copolymers incorporating both synthetic plastic formulations, such as polystyrene, and naturally occurring biodegradable polymer components, such as cellulose, starch, or xylan, requires stable chemical bonding between these polymers. Modification of the natural polymers through acetylation of the available hydroxyl groups permits the formation of appropriate film-forming plastic copolymers. However, modification of natural polymers has… CONTINUE READING
