Unlike aromatic polycarbonates, aliphatic polycarbonates (APCs) have been little explored commercially. However, their low toxicity and biodegradability make them excellent candidates for biomedical applications. Recently, they have also been investigated as thermoplastics, binders for photovoltaics, polymer electrolytes and adhesives. Part of this renewed attention stems from the possibility to obtain APCs via the copolymerisation of CO2 and epoxides, an attractive reaction which uses an… CONTINUE READING
