Plant Biomass Derived Materials

Comprehensive overview of materials derived from biomass, including extraction techniques, important building blocks, and a wide range of applications

Plant Biomass Derived Materials provides insights into the different sources and kinds of biomass and covers a variety of techniques to derive important building blocks from raw resources; after foundational knowledge is covered, the text continues to discuss a comprehensive list of materials and applications, ranging from nanomaterials, polymers, enzymes, dyes, and composites, to applications in energy, biomedical, water purification, aeronautics, automotive and food applications, and more.

Written by four highly qualified authors with significant experience in both industry and academia, Plant Biomass Derived Materials includes information on:

  • Biomass and its relationship to the environment, chemistry of biomass, lignin and starch, and recent trends of cashew nutshell liquid in the field
  • Plant biomass mucilage, plant based colorants, revival of sustainable fungal based natural pigments, and algal-based natural pigments for textiles
  • Biorefinery from plant biomass (including a case study in sugarcane straw), forest and agricultural biomass, and manufacture of monomers and precursors
  • Chemical routes for the transformation of bio-monomers into polymers and manufacture of polymer composites from plant fibers

Providing foundational knowledge on the subject and a wide array of specific applications of biomass, Plant Biomass Derived Materials is an essential resource for chemists, materials scientists, and all academics and professionals in fields that intersect with biomass: an abundant renewable resource used for many diverse purposes.
