Polyhydroxyalkanoates : Biosynthesis, Chemical Structures and Applications

This book opens with an exposé on employing extremophiles as polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) producers. The authors suggest that extremophiles may be easily subjected to a long-term continuous cultivation processes, which considerably enhances overall productivity while reducing the energy demand in biopolymer production. Conversely, a range of challenges remain, including improving the metabolic capability of extremophiles, recycling of ...

Carbon, Nitrogen and Phosphorus Cycling in Forest Soils

The majority of carbon stored in the soils of the world is stored in forests. The refractory nature of some portions of forest soil organic matter also provides the slow, gradual release of organic nitrogen and phosphorus to sustain long term forest productivity. Contemporary and future disturbances, such as climatic warming, deforestation, short rotation sylviculture, the invasion of exotic species, and fire, all place strains on th...

Bioethanol and Beyond : Advances in Production Process and Future Directions

Bioethanol and Beyond: Advances in Production Process and Future Directions discusses the advances in the production process of bioethanol, ranging from first to fourth generation bioethanol. Bioethanol is currently applied besides simple fuels (biofuel): it is mixed with other fuels, such as gasoline and diesel, and used for generating renewable fuels, such as hydrogen. Advances in the industrial bioethanol (first and second generat...

Flow Injection Analysis: Instrumentation and Applications

The concept of flow injection analysis (FIA) was introduced in the mid-seventies. It was preceded by the success of segmented flow analysis, mainly in clinical and environmental analysis. This advance, as well as the development of continuous monitors for process control and environmental monitors, ensured the success of the FIA methodology. As an exceptionally effective means of mechanization for various procedures of wet chemical a...

Chemistry for the utterly confused

Granted, I've only begun using this book, but already it's helping me a lot with my chem 101 class. I never took chemistry in high school, and I have to take basic chemistry for the degree program I'm in. Unfortunately, my professor (and the textbook he chose) assume you know a bit of chem from high school, which I don't. So far, this book has done an awesome job explaining concepts in a basic, plain english manner, which helps treme...
