This book covers recent advances in science and technology related to the conversion of lignocellulosics to useful products. Part of book covers the molecular biology of the enzymes and the microbes involved in conversion, where hydrolysis of cellulose continues to be of prime importance in many overall conversion schemes. Information is presented on reaction kinetics and reaction mechanisms of cellulases. The book also deals with state-of-the-art methods of cellulase production, both by submerged fermentation and by solid state fermentation. It also describes recent advances in dilute acid hydrolysis of cellulose as well as covering methods and the perspectives for bioconversion of lignocellulosic materials to produce ethanol, organic acids and other value-added products.
