Enzymatic hydrolysis of polyester plastics

Michael Zumstein has a paper in the latest issue of Environ. Sci. Technol. that was published today. The topic is the breakdown of polyester plastics by enymatic hydrolysis and is relevant to the degradation of polyester plastics in soils. Polyesters are the leading candidate for biodegradable plastic materials and understanding their fate in soil is important for assessing their potential environmental impact.
