About this Book
This first systematic scientific reference in the area of micro and nanostructured biopolymer systems discusses in two volumes the morphology, structure, dynamics, properties and applications of all important biopolymers, as well as their blends, composites, interpenetrating networks and gels.
Selected leading researchers from industry, academia, government and private research institutions around the globe comprehensively review recent accomplishments in the field. They examine the current state of the art, new challenges, opportunities and applications, discussing all the synthetic routes to the generation of both micro- and nano-morphologies, as well as the synthesis, characterization and application of porous biopolymers.
With figures and tables available as supplementary PowerPoint files, this is an outstanding resource for anyone involved in the field of eco-friendly biomaterials for advanced technologies.
