C1.5.2 Polymers C1 Lesson 31 Uses of Polymers
b Polymers have many useful applications and new uses are being developed, for example: new packaging materials, waterproof coatings for fabrics, dental polymers, wound dressings, hydrogels, smart materials (including shape memory polymers) Know that we use a wide range of polymers developed for specific purposes.
c Many polymers are not biodegradable: so they are not broken down by microbes and this can lead to problems with waste disposal. Identify from properties relevant uses for a polymer.
d Plastic bags are being made from polymers and cornstarch so that they break down more easily. Biodegradable plastics made from cornstarch have been developed. Realise that polymers are often hard to dispose of, and that biodegradable ones offer some solutions to these problems.
