Item description for Polyesters I: Biological Systems and Biotechnological Production (Biopolymers, Vol. 3a) by Yoshiharu Doi...
Volumes 3a, b and 4 focus on polyesters synthesized by bacteria and eukaryotic organisms as well as all aspects of the biosynthesis and metabolism of these biopolymers together with their production and isolation. In addition, these volumes treat various synthetic polyesters and related polymers synthesized by the chemical industry for the manufacture of biodegradable materials. Topics include: polyhydroxyalkanoates, pha granules, non-storage phas, poly(malic acid), cutin, suberin, polyphosphate, polylactides, polyglycolide, polyanhydrides, polyesteramides, aliphatic organic polyesters and related polymers, in vitro synthesis of polyesters, chemical synthesis, biotechnological production by fermentation, isolation from plants, production in transgenic plants, biodegradation.

Yoshiharu Doi is Professor at the Department of Innovative and Engineered Materials, Tokyo Institute of Technology and Director of Polymer Chemistry Laboratory, RIKEN Institute, Japan. In 1975 he received his PhD in chemical engineering from the Tokyo Institute of Technology. From 1970 to 1983 he studied the stereospecific polymerization of alpha-olefins with Ziegler-type catalysts. He also discovered the first example of a living coordination polymerization of propene. Since 1984 he has been studying biosynthesis and material properties of biodegradable polyesters and biobased polymers. His group published 400 original research papers, 180 reviews and 35 book chapters. He is an editorial board member of five international journals and has organized five international conferences.
