    Japanese researchers debuted a new compound that can accelerate the oxidation of the sugar-derived 5-hydroxymethylfurfural and turn it into raw material for bioplastics. The new catalyst is also sustainable since it can further reduce the dependency on fossil fuels that are currently used to create most plastics and associated catalysts. Most raw materials...
