Vinylbenzyl thymine (VBT) is a water-soluble polymer that is used to make photoresists. Students make their own photoresists in this lab as they learn about greener solutions to the global e-waste problem.
Students extend the lifetime of a renewable product, a polylactic acid (PLA) plastic cup, by chemically converting the cup into a cleaning solution via a base hydrolysis.
NEW! Kit available from Flinn Scientific.
Supplement the PLA Lab with a titration extension.
