What is written on the glass partitions in this chemistry lab may look like another language, but it could be the key to unlocking a solution to America’s plastic predicament.

“There is no silver bullet,” said Frank Leibfarth, a professor of chemistry at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. “It’s a gigantic problem.”

Leibfarth and his fellow researchers are dedicated to figuring out how the plastic we use every day could be turned into something useful and better.
