Pharmaceutical Science Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Thermoplastic Starch
A Green Material for Various Industries
edited by Leon Janssen

Thermoplastic Starch collates all the information hitherto scattered in journal articles and on websites, thus meeting the application-oriented needs of the reader.

The contents stretch between many important areas, such as production and applications of biopolymeric material, fundamental knowledge and practical applications, and includes valuable experimental case studies, which can be directly used in industrial practice.

All the data satisfies EU environmental regulations, which are the most stringent worldwide.
