Light-regulated production of biodegradable plastics
 
High production costs and a poor thermal stability are particularly challenging for the broad-scale application of biodegradable polymers such as e.g. polylactide (PLA). Researchers from the Humboldt-University in Berlin have developed a photoswitchable catalyst system which enables tailoring of polymer properties.

Learn more about the topic in the article by Prof. Dr. Stefan Hecht et al., Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Department of Chemistry & IRIS Adlershof, on the q&more portal.
