Substrate Report for: MHET

product of hydrolysis of Polyethylene-terephthalate or HEMT model substrate. Polyethylene terephthalate is the most common thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family and is used in fibers for clothing, containers for liquids and foods. Degradation of PET using hydrolytic enzymes leads to the release of hydrolysis products such as BHET (bis(2-hydroxyethyl) terephthalate), MHET (mono-(2-hydroxyethyl) terephthalic acid), TPA (terephthalic acid) and EG (ethylene glycol)

Type Terephthalate, Phthalate, Benzoate
