Original Abstract

In this proposed work, flexible biodegradable polyurethane (BIO-PUR) foams were prepared by one-shot process where commercial non-degradable polyether polyol derived from petrochemical feed stocks was partly substituted by the bio-polyols based on cellulose or starch derivatives. The BIO-PUR biodegradation was observed by means of experiments with various soil bacteria, yeasts and fungi and the ecotoxicological aspects of the newly synthesized BIO-PUR foams were investigated by both standard and alternative tests.
