      Polyesters III: Applications and Commercial Products (Biopolymers, Vol. 4) [Doi, Yoshiharu, Steinbüchel, Alexander] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. Polyesters III: Applications and Commercial Products (Biopolymers, Vol. 4)Format: Hardcover. Book Description. This book presents an experimental and computational account of the applications of biopolymers in the field of medicine. Biopolymers are macromolecules produced by living systems, such as proteins, polypeptides, nucleic acids, and polysaccharides.

      Biopolymers: Biomedical and Environmental Applications comprehensively and uniquely covers almost all the topics related to polysaccharides, biofibers, bioplastics, biocomposites, natural rubber, proteins, gums, bacterial polymers and their applications in various fields with an emphasis on biomedicine and the environment. It shows recent. This book provides valuable coverage of all major food biopolymers from plant, animal and marine sources. Researchers hoping to gain a basic understanding of the techno-functional, nutraceutical potential and applications of food biopolymers .

    Founded in , Biopolymers publishes strictly peer-reviewed papers examining naturally occurring and synthetic biological macromolecules. By including experimental and theoretical studies on the fundamental behaviour as well as applications of biopolymers, the journal serves the interdisciplinary biochemical, biophysical and biomedical research communities.   Biopolymers introduction Types of biopolymers Carbohydrates Proteins Lipids Nucleic acids Contents 3. Biopolymers are polymers produced by living organisms; in other words, they are polymeric biomolecules. Since they are polymers, biopolymers contain monomeric units that are covalently bonded to form larger structures. 4.

Into materials and products whose properties fulfill environmental and economic requirements. This book presents two aspects of biopolymers; products and applications.

In the first section, Products of Biopolymers, a collection of chapters is presented covering topics such as antioxidant properties of one of Products and applications of biopolymers book oldest known natural polymers, gum.

Environmental pressure is pushing away from synthetic or petro-chemically derived products, while economic factors are pulling back from often more expensive "green" options. This book presents two aspects of biopolymers; potential products and some applications of biopolymers covering the current relevance of by: Abstract.

This chapter investigates the packaging applications of biopolymers. The chapter consists of five parts. The first part gives a short preview of the circumstances that led to the development of packaging materials derived from renewable resources, and the challenges the packaging industry is facing.

This book brings together a number of key biopolymer and biodegradable plastics topics in one place for a broad audience of engineers and scientists, especially those designing with biopolymers and biodegradable plastics, or evaluating the options for switching from traditional plastics to biopolymers.

Biopolymers and biodegradable plastics are finding new applications in various sectors, from packaging, to medical, automotive and many more. As synthetic plastics are increasingly replaced by their bioplastic equivalents, engineers are facing new challenges including processing, costs, environmental sustainability and – ultimately.

Biopolymers: Applications and Trends provides an up-to-date summary of the varying market applications of biopolymers characterized by biodegradability and includes tables with the commercial names and properties of each biopolymer family, along with biopolymers for each marketing segment, not only presenting all the major market players.

Biopolymers: Processing and Products, the second book of a trilogy dedicated to biopolymers, gives a detailed insight into all aspects of processing, seamlessly linking the science of biopolymers to the latest trends in the development of new products.

Processes covered in the book include blending, compounding, treatment, and shaping, as well. Book Description. Industrial Applications of Marine Biopolymers presents different classes of marine biopolymers and their industrial applications, demonstrating the precious value of ocean resources to society.

This timely volume discusses the exceedingly useful polymers derived from these materials that are biodegradable, biocompatible, and at times. After the introduction which summarizes the importance of biopolymer in the market, the book covers almost all the topics related to polysaccharides, biofibers, bioplastics, biocomposites, natural rubber, gums, bacterial and blood compatible polymers, and applications of biopolymers in various fields.

Biopolymers Online with Editor in Chief Alexander Steinbüchel provides a comprehensive overview of the occurrence, metabolism, and applications of all important biopolymer classes. This reference work treats processes for biotechnological production, isolation from organisms and modification, material properties and technical uses in areas.

Biopolymers Reuse, Recycling and Disposal is the first book covering all aspects of biopolymer waste management and post-usage scenarios, embracing existing technologies, applications, and the behavior of biopolymers in various waste streams.

An overview of recent advances in the fabrication of biopolymers nanocomposites from a variety of sources, including organic and inorganic nanomaterials, is. 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.

Biopolymers are biodegradable polymers produced by living organisms. However, polymers that are synthesized chemically by humans from biological sources such as vegetable oils, fats, resins, sugars, proteins, and amino acids can also be described as biopolymers (Hernández et al., ).As compared with synthetic polymers, biopolymers are more structurally complex with.
