About this book

Providing readers with a basic knowledge of biopolymers, The Role of Green Chemistry in Biomass and Processing and Conversion offers a score of methods and solutions to integrate green chemistry that will lead to cleaner burning fuels.

This up-to-date guide and review on applying green chemistry technologies covers recent advances on homogenous, heterogeneous catalytic system and biocatalysis for biomass conversion and the assessment of environmental and ecotoxicological effects of bioenergy and ionic liquids platforms, which is especially important to biorefinery manufacturing companies and researchers interested in chemical aspects of "clean technology".
