Biopolymers' Overview - Types, Synthesis, Properties, Innovations and Key Players

Donald Rosato – Jan 30, 2015

There are two main types of biopolymers: those that come from living organisms; and, those which need to be polymerized but come from renewable resources. Both types are used in the production of bioplastics. Biopolymers that are present in, or created by, living organisms include carbohydrates and proteins.These can be used in the production of plastic for commercial purposes. Examples include...

Thanks for the credit on my PLA mechanical properties comparison! This is a nice article but there are many new developments in biobased polyamides (i.e. nylons) that readers may want to investigate. Anyone can download and read a very short overview article I prepared (along with Prof. Peter Halley) for the Materials Research Society titled "Next Generation Biopolymers" from my LinkedIn page at : https://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=AAIAAAGW8pcBht11V91SkWur21vf_tdtFztSXqA&trk=nav_responsive_tab_profile Thanks again! Professor John Dorgan
