Processing Technology for Bio-Based Polymers: Advanced Strategies and Practical Aspects brings together the latest advances and novel technologies for the synthesis and manufacture of biopolymers, ranging from bio-based polymers to synthetic polymers from bio-derived monomers. Effective and innovative processing strategies enable increased influence on final characteristics, stability, and sustainability of biopolymer-based products. The book emphasizes new processing technologies, the impact of processing on properties, new characterization methods, and biologically derived catalysts for robust processing of biobased polymers, with a view to application in high-value products of industrial, environmental and medical use.
The book begins by examining bio-based polymer chemistry, polymerization process, and emerging design technologies. This is followed by in-depth coverage of manufacturing and processing approaches, explaining cutting-edge approaches and innovative applications, with a focus on the biomedical area, alongside other key application areas. The final chapters provide detailed discussion and analysis of economic and environmental concerns, practical considerations, challenges, opportunities, and future trends.
This is a valuable resource for researchers, scientists, and advanced students, in polymer science, bio-based materials, nanomaterials, plastics engineering, biomaterials, chemistry, biotechnology, and materials science and engineering, as well as R&D professionals, engineers, and industrialists interested in the development of biopolymers for advanced products and applications.
