070021: Poly (1,4-benzodioxepin-3-alkyl-2,5-dione)s: Degradable Polymers with High Glass Transition Temperatures

Polylactic acid (PLA) is growing rapidly in popularity as an alternative to petroleum-derived plastics. It is biodegradable, thermoplastic, and derived from renewable resources. However, polylactides must be crystalline tor them to be dimensionally stable above 50° C, which is a characteristic that limits its use for some applications. Manipula...

000020: Process for the Preparation of Polymers of Dimeric Cyclic Esters

Polylactic acid (PLA) is growing rapidly in popularity as an alternative to petroleum-derived plastics. It is biodegradable, thermoplastic, and derived from renewable resources. Presently, the preparation of crystalline materials requires enantiopure L-lactide, where lactic acid is produced by microbial fermentation, and the cyclic lactide mono...
