Polyethylene-Based Biocomposites and Bionanocomposites

Biodegradable polymers have experienced a growing interest in recent years for applications in packaging, agriculture, automotive, medicine, and other areas. One of the drivers for this development is the great quantity of synthetic plastic discarded improperly in the environment. Therefore, R&D in industry and in academic research centers, search for materials that are reprocessable and biodegradable. This unique book comprises ...

Synergy in Supramolecular Chemistry

Cooperative and synergistic chemical events have attracted significant attention from many researchers engaged in organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, biological chemistry, polymer chemistry, medicinal chemistry, and other related materials sciences. Synergistic supramolecular systems could be developed to amplify the functions and integration of molecular devices in ways that cannot be achieved by conventional single molecules. T...

Food Authentication: Management, Analysis and Regulation

The determination of food authenticity is a vital component of quality control. Its importance has been highlighted in recent years by high-profile cases in the global supply chain such as the European horsemeat scandal and the Chinese melamine scandal which led to six fatalities and the hospitalisation of thousands of infants. As well as being a safety concern, authenticity is also a quality criterion for food and food ingredients. ...

Biofilms in the Food Environment, Second Edition

In nature, microorganisms are generally found attached to surfaces as biofilms such as dust, insects, plants, animals and rocks, rather than suspended in solution. Once a biofilm is developed, other microorganisms are free to attach and benefit from this microbial community. The food industry, which has a rich supply of nutrients, solid surfaces, and raw materials constantly entering and moving through the facility, is an ideal envir...
