Second Edition of Polysaccharides Handbook
from C.H.I.P.S.

Polysaccharides
Structural Diversity and Functional Versatility
Second Edition
edited by Severian Dumitriu

Features of Polysaccharides: Structural Diversity and Functional Versatility, Second Edition:

  • Discusses renewable resources for the production of various industrial chemicals and engineering plastics polysaccharides
  • Covers new developments in cellulose technology
  • Offers methods to optimize and control polysaccharide properties and produce new materials with improved performance

Completely revised and expanded to reflect the latest advancements in the field, Polysaccharides, Second Edition outlines fundamental concepts in the structure, function, chemistry, and stability of polysaccharides and reveals new analytical techniques and applications currently impacting the cosmetic, medicinal, chemical, and biochemical industries.

This authoritative book discusses polysaccharides utilized in medical applications such as polysaccharide-based hydrogels, polysialic acids, proteoglycans, glycolipids, and anticoagulant polysaccharides; renewable resources for the production of various industrial chemicals and engineering plastics polysaccharides; and more.
