Polypropylene (PP)

Polypropylene (CHEBI:53550) is a thermoplast and consists of polymers of propane-1,2-diyl units. It is mainly used for the production of packaging material.
No specific enzymes acting on the polymer are known.
Predicted and not characterized enzymes will not be listed. In case you are aware of PP-active and biochemically characterized enzymes, please contact the PAZY team.
