About this book

The possibilities surrounding the use of renewable resources for chemical feedstock is well known. What appears to stand between the concept and realization of using renewable resources is technology development. This book examines the roadblocks facing development of renewables, discusses new building blocks and their properties, mechanisms of transformations of biomass polymers into single products, and new methodologies that promise to improve the utility of renewables. The volume also describes new research that addresses the shortcomings renewables currently face.
