Sustainable and Chemically Recyclable Photopolymers for Three-Dimensional Printing

Sijia Huang | 22-ERD-047

Executive Summary

In response to the urgent need to develop recyclable and sustainable photopolymers, we will synthesize, evaluate, and optimize the capabilities of a new type of chemically recyclable photopolymer that can be used for three-dimensional printing of high-performance materials. By developing highly versatile photo-printable resins, our work offers the potential to open a new roadmap to address the epidemic of plastic waste and offer new features for additive manufacturing technologies.
