About this book

This timely volume provides comprehensive coverage of these most important compounds which are a vital part of all plants' structure, and in energy storage systems.

Commencing with a section covering cell wall composition, the book then provides wide coverage of aspects including polysaccharide biosynthesis, supra-molecular structure, and bioengineering. A final section of the book deals with the exploitation of nanoscale phenomena and biological properties of plant polysaccharides, including chapters on their relevance in food ingredient design, dental implant coatings and their properties as anti-cancer agents.
