The adsorption method for atmospheric water harvesting (AWH) is considered as a promising heat driven technology for potable water supply in arid regions. This research is focused on the novel composite sorbents based on hygroscopic salts loaded i...
A Multitool for Circular Economy: Fast Ring‐Opening Polymerization and Chemical Recycling of (Bio)polyesters Using a Single Aliphatic Guanidine Carboxy Zinc Catalyst
Von Wiley-VCH zur Verfügung gestellt
The Front Cover shows the material flows in a circular plastics economy and highlights the important role of catalysts in its future implementation. For this purpose, we present a zinc-based catalyst with a newly developed hybrid guanidine ligand. In the production of renewable polyesters our catalyst is highly active towards the ring-opening polymerization of lactide at various reaction conditions, outperforming the industrially used toxic catalyst tin octanoate. Moreover, it shows high activity in the chemical recycling of bio-based as well as petroleum-based polyesters. By using specific reaction conditions, the catalyst opens up the possibility to create new processes for the selective recycling from plastic mixtures. This multifunctionality makes our new catalyst a mediator of circular plastic flows and facilitates these material flows like a traffic circle..
