Abstract:
Mounting concerns require a solution to a worsening problem of chewing gum litter. Existing methods of removal are costly and ineffective. One solution requires the modification of chewing gum by the incorporation of amphiphilic graft copolymers. The synthesis of amphiphilic graft copolymers, their incorporation into chewing gum compositions, analysis of such compositions and results from trials testing ch€wing gum removability are described. Modified samples, incorporating an amphiphilic graft copolymer (REV -7) were found to be much easier to remove than -control samples.
