"This encyclopedic work covers....more aspects of the chemistry of wood and cellulose than have been available before in a single volume...This will be the bible of wood chemistry for the foreseeable future. Essential for any institution involved in wood chemistry."
"Considered as a whole, the work offers a very good, up-to-date, and in some parts detailed survey of the specialized subject of wood and cellulose chemistry. . ..The book can be recommended for everyone in research and teaching who seeks an up-to-date account of the present state of knowledge regarding the chemistry of renewable raw materials, natural polymers, wood, and cellulose."
". . .The rich source of references and the broad scope of the book make this collection a suitable addition for the library of both the experienced practitioner and those who are new to the field."
---Journal of the American Chemical Society
". . .Success in [the problem of complex upgrading of renewable resources] may be reached only by a thorough knowledge of the complex aspects of accessibility, composition, chemical modification and properties. In this respect, the book is recommended to all those involved in such activities, as well as to researchers and students specializing in wood's chemistry and biochemistry, and in technologies for its chemical and mechanical processing, as well."
---Cellulose Chemistry and Technology
"This book should be compulsory reading for members of the SERC Chemistry Committee."
