Oxidation/Decomposition of Chewing Gum Blots

  1. Jun 2, 2014 #1
    Why is the oxidation/decomposition of chewing gum blots stuck on pavements such a slow affair? Why do these blots persist for such a very very long time before being weathered away? What molecular components give chewing gum this great chemical stability?
