Description - Biopolymers by Erik Vandamme
Biopolymers represent the most abundant organic compounds in the biosphere, constituting the by-far largest fraction of cells and organisms. This multi-volume handbook provides a thorough overview of the occurrence and metabolism of biopolymers, the processes by which they are biotechnologically produced, their material properties, and their technical applications in many areas from medicine to the food industry. Volumes 5 and 6 focuses on simple and complex polysaccharides which are synthesized by organisms as storage compounds, cell wall constituents or compounds at the surfaces of cells. Biosynthesis, metabolism, biodegradation, functions, properties, and applications of these biopolymers are described.
