The chemical degradation processes of PET waste are frequently demonstrated as follows: hydrolysis (22), (23), glycolysis (24), methanolysis (25), aminolysis (26), (27), ammonolysis (28), and other processes (29), (30).
Meanwhile, ammonolysis reaction of DPrC is reversible, so it is economical to obtain slow/ controlled released fertilizer by increasing molar weight of urea.
Also disclosed is a method for producing the acetoacetyl polymer, wherein the method is characterised by comprising the following steps: ammonolysing an acetoacetatc via ester ammonolysis reaction using an ami no-containing polysiloxane, and/or esterifyinga hydroxyalkyl-containing polysiloxane via transesterification reaction using an acetoacetate.
Another process, called ammonolysis, can restore more of the original molecular weight, but it is costlier than the new technology, she said.
