Abstract or Summary
  • This study looks at the properties of glycerol/citric acid as they are affected by the length and temperature of the bake used to facilitate the condensation reaction that creates the polymer. In particular, the length of time required for the polymer to break down in the presence of water, both humidity and submersion, was examined. Given the degradable nature of the glycerol/citric acid it was examined for suitability as a replacement for Bitusize (emulsified asphalt) in the making of degradable flower pots. It was found that the Bitusize did not act as a binder in the flower pots, but as a water repellant, thus the glycerol/citric acid polymer was not a suitable replacement material.
