A novel bioplastic

Summary A novel bioplastic, poly ((3R,5R)-3,5-dihydroxyhexanoic acid (poly(3,5-DHH), has been discovered. This molecule may be manufactured biosynthetically and offers significant advantages over current bio-plastics standards, such as high solubility and ease of chemical modification. Bioplastics based off of poly(3,5-DHH) may be used as a thermoplastics in injection molding techniques in addition to uses in the medical, surgical, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics fields.

Applications A biodegradable bio-plastic for use in injection molding, medical, surgical, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics fields. For Further Information Please Contact the Director of Business Development Michal Preminger Email: michal_preminger@hms.harvard.edu Telephone: (617) 432-0920
