Biochemical Degradation of Polymers

The Organic Evolution high polymers ranging from natural cellulose to vinyls, acrylates, polyamides and polyesters, contain essential elements for nutrition of plants and animals. The enzyme systems present in the organisms can attack these organic materials by virtue of specificity or adaptation, depending upon the chemical constitution and Polymer Structure. It was previously noted that certain of these polymers were liable to microbial attack, and this posed a problem in their general use as electrical insulation and protective coatings. The evaluation of the relative resistance of polymers to fungi and bacteria has been a subject of investigation for a long time but the chemical and mechanistic approach has hardly been undertaken.
