The main goal of this research was to develop degradable systems either by developing
weaklink-containing polymers or identifying commercial polymeric systems which are
easily degraded. In both cases, the degradation method involves environmentally
friendly chemistries. The weaklinks are easily degradable fragments which are
introduced either randomly or regularly in the polymer backbone or as crosslinking sites
to make high molecular weight systems via branching. We targeted three general
application areas: 1) non-lethal deterrents, 2) removable encapsulants, and 3) readily
recyclable/environmentally friendly polymers for structural and thin film applications.
Here’s what’s next.
