Abstract

An environmentally friendly greening material was fabricated using water-soluble, biodegradable polyaspartic acid derived from biomass. Polyaspartic acid was cross-linked with 1,4-diaminobutane, where the best water absorption was achieved when the cross-linking agent/polymer ratio was 20%. Moreover, germination tests of soil employing the water-absorbing polymer showed promoted elongation growth and suppressed axial length dispersion in tested plants.
