Biomass Sugars for Non-Fuel Applications Hardback
Edited by Dmitry (Abo Akademi University, Finland) Murzin, Olga (Amgen Manufacturing Ltd, USA) Simakova
Part of the Green Chemistry Series series
Biomass-derived sugars provide a rich, renewable feedstock for a diverse range of chemicals, making them a promising and feasible source for the sustainable manufacture of a variety of valuable products.
Exploring green sugar-based technologies beyond their applications in fuels, this book provides an overview of sugar-based technologies, describing their challenges and opportunities.
It covers transformations of sugars into green chemicals in pharmaceuticals, biodegradable polymers and surfactants.
A special chapter is dedicated to the conversion of biomass into sugars, which is a crucial step in the sustainable utilization of sugars.
The book is a valuable resource for chemists and chemical engineers working to develop greener synthetic routes to chemicals and pharmaceuticals.
