Description

General description

Poly(vinyl alcohol) is a vinyl based water soluble polymer that can be used as a non-ionic surface active agent. It can also be used as a biodegradable polymer and can be incorporated in adhesives, coatings, textiles ceramics and cosmetics. Its properties include good transparency, chemical resistance, toughness and antielectrostatic properties.

Application

PVA can be used as a chelating agent in the synthesis of zirconium oxide nanopowder from zirconium hydroxide. It can also be used as biopolymer which finds potential application in fiber based food packaging.
