Prior to the application of given polymeric materials

Prior to the application of given polymeric materials, the information that relates to their post environmental impact is particularly essential. These polymers can be synthetic or natural. In the 21st century, synthetic polymers which are mainly derived from fossil fuels/or synthetic monomers are produce extensively for usages in plastic, textile, pharmaceutical, electronics, and aerospace industries, or in wastewater treatment plants for removal of toxins.
Most of these polymers are non-degradable under normal conditions; therefore, they persist in the environment and therefore threatening the health of the biota. As a result, there is continous search by researchers to explore alternative materials like polysaccharide biopolymers. In accordance to the principal of green chemistry, use of degradable and renewable feedstock can help to establish a greener environment.
