Polypropylene Carbonate (also known as PPC) is a thermoplastic copolymer synthesized from CO2 and propylene oxide. Some of its favorable properties include excellent transparency, good barrier against water and oxygen, printability and nontoxicity. PPC is indicated as potential substitute for some applications of petroleum based polymers as PP, PE, PVC and PS. This polymer presents important environmental appeals: greenhouse gas sequestration that minimizes global warming impacts, and some PPC composites are appointed as biodegradable materials.
