What is your idea about the mode of degradation of biodegradable Polymers in nature?

Dear Student,

Currently we see that biodegradable polymers break down down to form gases, salts, and biomass. Complete biodegradation is said to occur when there are no oligomers or monomers left. The breakdown of these polymers depend on a variety of factors including the polymer and also, the environment the polymer is in.The surrounding environment of the polymer is just as important as the polymer structure itself.
