About this book
The book describes in detail the authors’ current understanding of the models that incorporate the concepts and techniques of synthetic chemistry, chemical engineering, synthetic biology and bioengineering. These include chemical engineering methods for green chemical production from sustainable bio-resources; using synthetic chemistry and kinetics of chemical reaction concepts in the construction of non-natural enzymes and bio-pathways, partial integration of bioconversion steps in chemical synthesis routes; integration of chemo-, bio- conversion steps in one system; microbial production of chemicals from economic chemo-resourced chemicals; and chemical production of value-added derivatives from bio-based amino acids. It provides a valuable reference source for laboratory and industrial professionals in a number of chemical and biological disciplines such as synthetic chemistry, synthetic biology, chemical engineering, biotechnology, microbiology, molecular biology, etc.Dr. Mo Xian is a Professor at Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Qingdao, China.
