Question

What are biodegradable polymers and non-biodegradable polymers? Write ‘one example’ of each.

Solution

Biodegradable polymers and non-biodegradable polymers: After a certain period of time, the natural polymers degrade on their own but synthetic polymers do not. These are non-biodegradable polymers and are resistant to environmental degradation processes and are accumulated as solid waste materials. Hence, efforts were made to synthesise biodegradable polymers to avoid environmental problems.

Example of biodegradable polymer: Dextron

Example of non-biodegradable polymer: 1-polyethylene
