Item description for Recent Progress in Bioconversion of Lignocellulosics (Advances in Biochemical Engineering / Biotechnology) by G.T. Tsao...
This volume reports the latest advances in the science and technology related to the conversion of lignocellulosics. A portion of the volume is devoted to molecular biology of the enzymes and the microbes involved in the conversion. Hydrolysis of cellulose continues to be of prime importance in the overall conversion scheme. Reaction kinetics and mechanisms of cellulases as well as the state-of-the-art methods of cellulase production by submerged fermentation and also by solid state fermentation are included in the volume. The latest advances made in dilute acid hydrolysis of cellulose are described. Finally, some exciting methods and perspectives for bioconverion of lignocellulosics into ethanol, organic acids and other value-added products are described.This volume should be useful to researchers in this area. It should also be helpful to those who want a concise overview of lignocellulosics.
