By Marcel Schlaf,Z. Conrad Zhang

Volume I quite often specializes in the present realizing of the response pathways and mechanisms curious about numerous vital catalytic conversions of cellulose and carbohydrates. It begins with nanoscale illustrations of biomass constructions and describes a variety of reactions together with cellulose depolymerization to sugars, catalytic aldose-ketose isomerization and dehydration, selective oxidation, hydrogenolysis of cellulose and sugars, and the conversion of brief carbohydrates. The specificity and serve as of alternative catalysts and response media relating to the catalytic performances for those reactions are mentioned with major mechanistic details.
