Abstract

The guayule shrub (Parthenium Argentatum Grey) is processed into the following five major components of potential utility as polymeric materials: (1) high molecular weight natural rubber, (2) low molecular weight natural rubber, (3) organic soluble resins, (4) water soluble extracts, and (5) bagasse. This research has emphasized the isolation, characterization, and derivation of guayule coproducts.
