Sustainable Plastics: Scientists Make Versatile Polymer From Sugars in Wood (SciTechDaily)

Scientists from Bath’s Centre for Sustainable and Circular Technologies have made a sustainable polymer using the second most abundant sugar in nature, xylose. Not only does the new nature-inspired material reduce reliance on crude oil products, but its properties can also be easily controlled to make the material flexible or crystalline. The researchers, from the…
