Limiting our plastic waste and finding greener, more sustainable solutions for disposal is currently an environmental priority. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET), one of the more prominent single-use plastics, has recently been under investigation for chemical recycling as a means to ameliorate the environmental impact. This work reports a dual-catalytic approach to the chemical recycling of PET, aiming to combine inexpensive, readily available Lewis acid–base pairs to exhibit cooperative catalytic activity.
