Which of the following monomers form biodegradable polymers?
A. 3-hydroxybutanoic acid + 3-hydroxypentanoic acid
B. Glycine + amino caproic acid
C. Ethylene glycol + phthalic acid
The polymers which are easily decomposed and not harmful for the environment are known as a biodegradable polymer.
(i) PHBV, being a biodegradable polymer, is obtained by condensation polymerization of 3 hydroxybutanoic acid and 3 hxydroypentanoic acid.
