Abstract

Cellulose is destined to play a major role in the emerging bioeconomy. Awareness of the environment and a depletion of fossil fuels are some of the driving forces for looking at forest biomaterials for an alternative source of energy, chemicals and materials. The importance of cellulose is widely recognized world-wide and as such the field of cellulose science is expanding exponentially. Cellulose, the most abundant biopolymer on earth, has unique properties which makes it an ideal starting point for transforming it into useful materials. To achieve this, a solid knowledge of cellulose is essential. As such this book on cellulose, the first in a series of three, is very timely. It deals with fundamental aspect of cellulose, giving the reader a good appreciation of the richness of cellulose properties. Book Cellulose - Fundamental Aspects is a good introduction to books Cellulose - Medical, Pharmaceutical and Electronic Applications and Cellulose - Biomass Conversion , in which applications of cellulose and its conversion to other materials are treated.

Abstract

This book on cellulose, the second in a series of three, deals with the many applications of cellulose, both established ones and those that are emerging. It shows the richness in the way cellulose can be modified to serve a large variety of functions, varying from medical, pharmaceutical and bioelectronics applications. We hope that with these examples the imagination of the reader is stimulated and may him- or herself attempt to find new, fascinating applications of cellulose.
