Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"About half focusing on pulp and paper and the other half on textiles, 26 papers from a conference in San Francisco in April 1997 look at the current knowledge and practice of using enzymes in fiber processing. They consider such aspects as the freeness improvement of recycled fibers using enzymes with refining, characterizing fungal cellulases for fiber modification, the laccase catalyzed bonding of wood fibers, the cotton wall structure and enzymatic treatments, the effect of enzyme treatment on chemically pretreated linen, the enzymatic retting of flax, the interaction of subtilisin-type protease with Merino wool fibers, and modifying dissolving pulp by hydrolysis with cellulose enzymes."—SciTech Book News
