Abstract

Managing plastic waste is a challenging and pressing problem. In this issue of Chem, Soo and co-workers valorize commercial plastics and post-consumer plastic waste into isolable products, including formic acid, acetic acid, and benzoic acid, through vanadium-catalyzed tandem C–H oxidation and C–C cleavage photoreactions.
