Polysaccharides Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Biopolymers 5
Biology Chemistry Biotechnology Application
Polysaccharides from Prokaryotes
Edited by E.J. Vandamme

This book provides a thorough overview of the occurrence and metabolism of biopolymers. Volumes 5 focuses on simple and complex polysaccharides which are synthesized by organisms as storage compounds, cell wall constituents or compounds at the surfaces of cells. Biosynthesis, metabolism, biodegradation, functions, properties and applications of these biopolymers are described.

In addition, Biopolymers 5, covers processes for biotechnological production, isolation from organisms and modification, material properties and technical applications in various areas such as daily life products, medicine, pharmacy, food industry, agriculture, textiles, chemical industry and packaging industry is provided. It also outlines the future perspectives of biopolymers.

Topics included are:

Agar, Alginates and Alternan
Carrageenan, Cellulose and Cell Wall Polysaccharides from Fungi Fucogel
Chitin, Chitosan and Curdlan
Dextran
Elsinan, Emulsan
