Maitland Recycling: A High-Performance Recycling Solution for Polystyrene Achieved by the Synthesis of Renewable Poly(thioether) Networks Derived from d-Limonene (Adv. Mater. 10/2014) Advanced Materials 26
A materials engineering strategy that combines a breakthrough development in renewable polymer synthesis with an advancement in petroleum-derived plastics recycling is reported by K. Hearon and co-workers on page 1552: polymeric nanocomposites composed of a naturally derived rubber matrix phase and a recycled polystyrene precipitated phase are shown to exhibit mechanical behavior that greatly exceeds that of polystyrene and the naturally derived rubber alone.
