Chemistry and materials science for a sustainable circular polymeric economy

Research output: Journal contributionsComments / Debate / ReportsResearch

We reflect on the challenges and limitations of plastics — their sheer abundance, chemodiversity and imperfect recoverability leading to loss of material — and on the need for chemical and non-chemical approaches to overcome them.
