Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Aliphatic polythionoesters were prepared by the one-pot thionoesterification of polycaprolactone, polypentadecanolactone, poly (butylene succinate) and poly (butylene adipate) using diphosphorus pentasulfide and hexamethyldisiloxane. And their physico-chemical properties as well as enzymatic degradabilities and chemical recyclabilities were evaluated.
