Bioplastic Lab

by Aidan K.

 

I am doing a project on bioplastics for my chemistry class. I am trying to compare the properties of bioplastics made with different starches and polymers. I would like to have 1 recipe that is the same except that I can change the starch or polymer. Is there some kind of master recipe I could use?

    Absolutely! Many of our recipes are very similar. You can check out a good example of two similar recipes that vary the polymer here:

    If you want some more detailed ideas for experiments with SPECIFIC parameters to manipulate, the entire appendix of the Green Plastics book is dedicated to ideas for student experiments:

    Happy experimenting!
