|Volume 2 focusses
on polyisoprenoids. Most aspects of this volume are devoted to natural
polyisoprenoids such as for example: Natural rubber and Gutta Percha.
These natural polyisoprenoids are compared to synthetic rubbers. Topics
included are: Structures / Occurrence / Biosynthesis routes / Biochemical
polymerization / Biological functions / Properties / Biodegradation of
natural rubber / Biodegradation of synthetic rubber / Biotechnological
versus chemical recycling / Biotechnological desulfurization
