The best of the "Biopolymers" series. Since only a small number of individuals can afford to buy the entire Biopolymers series, or would simply prefer a broader overview, this handbook contains the very best of biotechnology, with articles taken directly from Alexander Steinbuchel-s successful series. As such, these two volumes cover the entire range of biopolymers and not just one chemical class, with the focus on the biotechnological systems and processes under development for a cost effective production, isolation and modification of biopolymers. Furthermore it covers the fundamentals of their chemical and physical properties, their occurrence, metabolism, biosynthesis and biodegradation as well as their industrial applications as renewable resources, novel materials and technical applications. With its contributions similarly structured for easy data comparison and an extensive table of patents, this is an ideal reference for medium sized laboratories and libraries.
