Cornell Chemists Image Basic Blocks of Synthetic Polymers

Synthetic polymers are everywhere in our society — from nylon and polyester clothing to Teflon cookware and epoxy glue. At the molecular level, these polymers’ molecules are made of long chains of monomer building blocks, the complexity of which increases functionality in many such materials. In particular, copolymers, which consist of different types of monomers […]

UK Scientists Address Difficult-to-Recycle Thermoset Polymers

A team of UK scientists are using at method that gets them a step closer to making several different types of plastic much easier to recycle. The method could be applied to a whole range of difficult-to-recycle polymers, including rubbers, gels, and adhesives. Thermoplastics can be heated to high temperatures, poured into a mould then […]
