Table 1 Glass transition temperature and tensile properties of PLimC22, PLimC rubber, BPA PC and silicone rubber.

From: Bio-based polycarbonate as synthetic toolbox

Polymer T g (°C) Young’s modulus (MPa) σ s (MPa) ɛ (%)
PLimC 130 950 55 15
PLimC rubber 5 1.0 6.8 228
BPA PC 145 2500 65 125
Silicone rubber −125 1.0 4.8–7.0 100–400
  1. BPA PC, bisphenol A polycarbonate; PLimC, poly(limonene carbonate).
  2. Data for PLimC rubber is taken from a cured sample of PLimC-B3MP with initially 2% unsaturation; for a more comprehensive table of polymers, see Supplementary Table 1.
