Making Polymers from a Greenhouse Gas - Versatile nanostructures made from CO<sub>2</sub> based polycarbonates

Latest News

Making Polymers from a Greenhouse Gas

Versatile nanostructures made from CO2 based polycarbonates.
A future where power plants feed their carbon dioxide directly into an adjacent production facility instead of spewing it up a chimney and into the atmosphere is definitely possible, because CO2 isn’t just an undesirable greenhouse gas; it is also a good source of carbon for processes like polymer production. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, American scientists have now introduced a two-step, one-pot conversion of CO2 and epoxides to polycarbonate block copolymers that contain both water-soluble and hydrophobic regions and can aggregate into nanoparticles or micelles.
