Author : Prof Lucian Lucia, Orlando Rojas
Description:The unique nanoscale properties of renewable biomaterials present valuable opportunities in the field of nanoscience and technology. Lignocellulosic biomass is an important industrial resource which can be used for the production of highly efficient and environmentally sustainable nanomaterials.The Nanoscience and Technology of Renewable Biomaterials presents the latest advances in biomass nanotechnology, including leading research from academia and industry, as well as a future vision for the nanotechnology of forest products.Topics covered include:A fundamental review of the relationship between nanotechnology and lignocellulosic biomassCharacterization methods for biomass on the nanometer scaleCellulose, hemicelluloses and lignin as nanoscopic biomaterials-physical features, chemical properties and potential nanoproductsNanoscale surface engineeringRenewable materials as scaffolds for tissue engineeringNanoscopically-controlled drug deliveryThis book will be a valuable resource for chemists, chemical engineers, bioscience researchers and materials scientists who are interested in harnessing the nanotechnological features of renewable biomaterials.
