Understanding Lignocellulose

Synergistic Computational and Analytic Methods

Micholas Dean Smith (Redaktør)

Lignocellulosic biomass is an abundant material, but fundamental questions remain about the microscopic origins of its properties. Recent multidisciplinary work has led to major advances in our understanding of connections between the structure of biomass and its mechanical properties and natural recalcitrance to chemical conversion.

Om boka

Lignocellulosic biomass is an abundant material, but fundamental questions remain about the microscopic origins of its properties. Recent multidisciplinary work has led to major advances in our understanding of connections between the structure of biomass and its mechanical properties and natural recalcitrance to chemical conversion. This volume highlights how traditional and cutting-edge methods can be combined to obtain both fundamental insights and pathways to
renewable bioproducts.
