Catalysis Investigation of PET Depolymerization by ZnSrO2 under Microwave Irradiation
In this paper, the powder of SrZnO2 was prepared by 1050°C solid-state reaction. The catalysis of SrZnO2 to the depolymerization of PET under microwave irradiation was studied under different temperatures. The results showed that the depolymerization rate of PET was reached 92.6% at 180°C when the reaction time was 220min. It was also found that the depolymerization rate of PET catalyzed by SrZnO2 was more than that of without catalyst under microwave irradiation.
