„A primer to enzymatic polymer degradation”
von Chengzhang Xu, Seema Agarwal, Andreas Möglich, Andreas Greiner
As highly efficient biocatalysts, enzymes could be used in technical applications for the
degradation of polymers, for chemical recycling of polymers, and for the removal of
microplastic debris. The formulation of enzymes with preservation of their enzymatic
activity is a major challenge for applications with polymers.
