This edition of the Plastics Advisor TOE profiles an antibacterial plastic developed using zinc, using a bio-based polymer as an effluent treatment additive, and a polymer that can dissipate heat. The issue also highlights the use of microwave irradiation to fuse 3D printed elements, a method to enable photoresponsive movement, a method to remove H2S from waste gas streams using polymeric catalyst. It also highlights how sulfur (VI) fluoride exchange click reaction can be used to produce polysulfates. Plastics Advisor TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications, and strategic insights of various plastics and composites and also analyses their impact across various industries. The Materials and Coatings cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and their impact and applications across industries. Keywords: Antibacterial plastics, zinc, bio-based polymers, 3D printed elements, photoresponsive movement, polysulfates, hydrogen sulfide
