Which of the following polymers polymerisation process involves microbiological systhesis of latic acid?

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;\text{PGA}\\(b)\; \text{PAN}\\(c)\;\text{PLA}\\(d)\;\text{PVC}\end{array}$

1 Answer

Polymer of lactic acid is biogradable.Out of the given options only PGA & PLA are biodegradable.
Polylactic acid (PLA) is obtained by microbiological synthesis of lactic acid followed by the poly-condensation and removal of water by evaporation.
Hence (c) is the correct answer.
