This dictionary provides profound information on renewable resources. Topics are all relevant plant and animal sources and the substances derived thereof, the standard technologies of isolation and derivatization, and the major fields of application - with regard to economic aspects and future developments. In addition to the "classical" use as raw materials of the chemical industry, the fields of energy/fuels, practical applications, e.g. as construction and insulation materials, the most important pharmaceutical agents, raw materials of cosmetics and toiletries as well as fragrances are treated. Not only modern methods are taken into account but also older, almost forgotten fields that stimulate new considerations.

Editorial Reviews

Contains detailed entries on plant and animal sources and substances derived thereof, standard technologies of isolation and derivatization, and major fields of application, with regard to economic aspects and future development. Treatment encompasses classical use of raw material in the chemical industry, as well as uses in energy and fuels, as construction and insulation materials, as pharmaceutical agents, and as raw materials of cosmetics and fragrances. Both modern methods and older, neglected fields are taken into account. Useful for those in public institutions, industry, agriculture, and ecology. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
Designed as a bridge between the wide range of people interested in renewable resources, from farmers and seed producers to industrial chemists, politicians, and educated general readers, the dictionary focuses mainly on using such resources as chemical feedstocks. However consideration is also given to energy and fuel and to direct functional uses without chemical modification such as construction and insulation materials, textile fibers, and resins for coatings and adhesives. The coverage of medical pharmaceutical, and cosmetic uses is limited to the most important applications. The 1996 first edition is here corrected, and the technical information, economic figures, and references updated. Entry-specific references are provided, but no index and little cross-referencing.
