Shining light on why plastics turn yellow

Insights could help researchers design plastic products that last longer before becoming unsightly or unusable

08-Sep-2022

If you own a retro gaming console or have an old roll of packing tape, you’ve seen how plastics turn yellow as they age. Though the cause of this color change has long been attributed to the formation of molecules that act as dyes — the actual chemical changes that take place remained ...
