Volume 9


Miscellaneous Biopolymers, Biodegradatiopn of Synthetic Polymers

Volume editors: Shuichi Matsumura and Alexander Steinbüchel
Volume 9 contributes further examples of important, interesting or exotic biopolymers beyond the previous volumes of this series. Its frist part focusses on biosynthesis, metabolism, biodegradation, functions, properties and applications of miscellaneous polymers such as hemozoin, thymine-containing styrene polymers, polythioesters, polyphosphate, polyhydroxymethionine, polyketides, natural polyacetals. The biodegradation of a wide range of synthetic polymers is treated in the second part of the volume.
