New processes for the chemical recycling of bisphenol A polycarbonate (PC), directly from post-consumer compact discs, have been developed. The first recycling method is based on the use of molecules that can be derived from renewable resources (isosorbide, ethylene carbonate and succinic acid). A second procedure involves a one-pot reaction of post consumer PC with ethylene carbonate, without complete degradation to low molecular weight products. The final polymers feature properties that make them suitable for powder coating applications.

Abstract

New processes for the chemical recycling of bisphenol A polycarbonate (PC), directly from post-consumer compact discs, have been developed. The first recycling method is based on the use of molecules that can be derived from renewable resources (isosorbide, ethylene carbonate and succinic acid). A second procedure involves a one-pot reaction of post consumer PC with ethylene carbonate, without complete degradation to low molecular weight products. The final polymers feature properties that make them suitable for powder coating applications.
