General description

Poly(propylene carbonate) (PPC) is an aliphatic polycarbonate which is mainly used as a packing material and binder resin. The ester group allows the backbone to have molecular flexibility. It is prepared by reacting carbon dioxide and propylene oxide. It has a low thermal stability which can be improved by capping the polymer with active agents.

Application

PPC can be used in the electrolytic composites which can be used in the development of electrochemical devices. It is a biocompatible and biodegradable polymer that can be used as a scaffold for potential applications in tissue engineering.
