Overview

By-products of global biodiesel manufacturing are a modern day global fact responsible for igniting a number of year’s worldwide intense research activity into human chemical ingenuity. This fully updated and revised 2nd edition depicts how practical limitations posed by glycerol chemistry are solved based on the understanding of the fundamental chemistry of glycerol and by application of catalysis science and technology. The authors report and comment on employable, practical avenues applicable to convert glycerol into value added products of mass consumption. This book is the best-selling reference book in the field. The highly anticipated 2nd Edition is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding whether biodiesel and glycerol refineries are convenient and economically sound.

Meet the Author

Professor Pagliaro is a research chemist and science methodology professor at Italy's National Research Council based in Palermo where he leads a research group collaborating with researchers of 10 countries and the new Institute for Scientific Methodology. His research interests lie at the interface of materials science, chemistry and biology. Reported in 60 scientific papers, book chapters and several patents, his achievements include chemical technologies now on the market.

Professor Rossi is a chemistry professor at the University of Milan. His scientific activity - documented by some 160 scientific papers and several patents - currently deals with catalysis for fine chemicals synthesis and recently resulted in the discovery of the surprising catalytic activity of gold nanoparticles in liquid phase oxidation of organic compounds.

James H Clark is Professor of Chemistry and Director of the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence, The University of York, UK. He has led the green chemistry movement in Europe for the last 15 years and was the first scientific editor of the journal Green Chemistry and is Editor-in-chief of the RSC Green Chemistry book series.
