Quantum Polychemics natural product jute biopolymer platform creates a wide range of polymers with tunable properties and practical applications to meet the growing demand for sustainable plastics. The platform invention provides the design of synthetic strategies for the development of polymer materials that originate from renewable resources, exhibit novel combinations of strength and toughness, as well as undergo hydrolytic breakdown to biologically beneficial by-products.
The innovation presents a specific application of the inventor’s green jute biopolymer platform to develop environmentally-friendly jute biopolymer materials through scalable synthesis processes. The materials are an environmentally friendly alternative to petroleum-based jute based bioplastics, such as those used in packaging, automotive interior, and exterior molding, medical equipment, and construction sectors.
Our technology stands alone as a renewable and fully biodegradable earth-friendly plastic substitute, that can be tuned to hundreds of short and long-term applications at a competitive price point.
One significant strength of the technology is its inherent versatility as it is truly more of a platform than a single polymer system.It can be thought of as a “plug-and-play” system where various modified natural product monomers and various thiol co-monomers can be used.In addition to the co-monomers, various solvents and additives can be used to modify the properties of the final polymer network.This allows for the formation of a variety of final products that can vary from hard and stiff materials to soft, which can be directly applied to current plant machinery with low capital cost.
