By Charles E. Carraher Jr., Cynthia Butler, Yoshinobu Naoshima, Dorothy Sterling (auth.), Charles G. Gebelein, Charles E. Carraher Jr. (eds.)

Some have envisioned that the arrival numerous many years may be the a long time of "biotechnology," in which melanoma, delivery defects, existence span raises, cosmetics, biodegradation, oil spills and exploration, good waste disposal, and nearly each point of our fabric existence should be plagued by this new quarter of technological know-how. there'll even be an extension of emphasis on tremendous molecules: DNA, enzymes, polysaccharides, lignins, proteins, hemoglobin, and so on. Biotechnology has been outlined in a number of methods. in a single feel, this box is older than human background and references to the human use of biotechnology-derived fabrics are available within the oldest human writings, resembling the Bible. during this e-book, biotechnology refers back to the direct utilization of clearly happening fabrics or their makes use of as a feedstock, together with the linked organic actions and purposes of those fabrics. Bioactive polymers, nonetheless, are polymers which exert a few form of task on residing organisms. those polymers are utilized in agriculture, managed free up structures, drugs and plenty of different parts. The papers during this publication describe polymers which basically mix beneficial properties of biotechnology and bioactivity.
