Plant biopolymer science

£25.00

Product description

Research into plant biopolymers, their structural characteristics and related physicochemical and functional properties is of increasing significance in the modern world. This is particularly true in relation to sustainable agriculture, environmentally friendly processes and new technology requirements and safe products. This unique book reports on the very latest research on plant biopolymer science, from biosynthesis through to applications. It describes specifically developments in the study of the biosynthesis of macromolecules and biopolymer design, going on to model systems such as biopolymer assemblies, interfaces and interphases. Finally, a discussion of multiphasic systems shows how these concepts may be extended to everyday applications. With contributions drawn from the international scientific community, Plant Biopolymer Science: Food and Non-Food Applications provides an overview of the state-of-the-art for a variety of readers, which will include students, researchers and teachers in academia to professionals in industry and government agencies.
This book presents the proceedings of the Workshop on Plant Biopolymer Science: Food and Non-Food Applications held at Nantes in the Congress Centre on 24-27 June 2001. Sessions were entitled: Biosynthesis; Biopolymer Design; Biopolymer Assemblies; Interfaces, Interphases; Multiphasic Systems. 304 pp. The binding is tight and the boards show only light shelfwear. The pages, text and cut edges are very clean and unmarked. There is an ex-library label on the spine. The first endpaper has ex-library numbers, a stamp and a label.
