From: Residual Monomer Content Affects the Interpretation of Plastic Degradation

Figure 2

Increases in dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) can be seen following microbial exposure to PA6 of varying residual monomer (rM) content. Results can be seen compared to the starting DIC of the initial exposure setup as well as the control which represents the exposure setup without PA6. Top-Left Inset: DIC development of PA pellets with 0.1% rM content during the peak leaching period (first 19 days; similar to that described by Romera-Castillo et al.)17 compared to DIC development following this period.
