Polypropylene Carbonate (a.k.a. PPC) is a thermoplastic polymer produced from the catalyzed copolymerization between carbon dioxide and propylene oxide. The copolymer chain is composed of alternative segments of carbon dioxide and propylene oxide, and small amounts of propylene oxide homopolymer. Some of its favorable properties include excellent transparency, good barrier against water and oxygen, printability and nontoxicity. This polymer presents important environmental appeals: greenhouse gas sequestration that minimizes global warming impacts, and some PPC composites are appointed as biodegradable materials.
