Chemistry for Sustainable Transformation of Lignocellulosic Resources (Hardcover)
about this item
This book presents the chemical properties of lignocellulosic fibers and makes a case for why it is important to understand chemical properties of lignocellulosic resources if one wants to innovate and respect sustainable development principles. Thermochemical transformation and biorefinery is presented in the context of green chemistry and green engineering, demonstrating the importance of chemistry for innovation and design of new products and processes. New developments in cellulose technology related to nanocellulose are also discussed, in addition to applications of lignocellulosic biopolymers in new composite materials and biomaterials.
