MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"It is inevitable that the increasing cost of petroleum-based products will result in polymers based on renewable resources becoming competitive. Among the naturally occuring polymers, polysaccharides are by far the most abundant, and a wide range of structural and functional types can be readily obtained. Formation of esters is a long-established approach to obtain polysaccharide derivatives with modified properties. New methods of preparation and, particularly, new methods for the evaluation of the results of modified procedures have resulted in a resurgence in interest in these materials. Applications of these new methods along with brief outlines of earlier work are summarized in this concise, easily readable book."..."The book is clearly written, but there are some typographical errors. The audience for this book will include polymer chemists and those interested in polysaccharides. Although the subject of the book has a long history, many of the references date from within the past 5 years. For the reader, it provides a concise summary of the structures and methods of characterization for the important polysaccharides and their esters as well as an outline of the advances that are being made in the preparation of new materials. The low cost and clear presentation will encourage personal purchase."

(T. Bruce Grindley, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Vol. 129 (7), 2007)
