Polybutylene succinate (PBS) (sometimes written polytetramethylene succinate) is a thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family. PBS is a biodegradable aliphatic polyester with properties that are comparable to polypropylene. It may also be referred to by the brand names Bionolle (Showa Denko) or GsPLA (Mitsubishi Chemical). PBS consists of polymerized units of butylene succinate, with repeating C8H12O4 units.
