Polysaccharides and Polyamides in the Food Industry, Two Volumes
July 2005, Wiley-Blackwell
More focused and affordable than the complete "Biopolymers" series, this is ideal for medium-sized laboratories and libraries for those working in the biotechnological and food industries.

Until 2004 Professor Sang Ki Rhee has been head of the Metabolic Engineering Laboratory at the Korea Research Institute of Bioscience and Biotechnology (KRIBB) in Taejon where his research was focused on the functional genomics and redesigning of industrial microorganisms. Since 2004 Professor Rhee has been appointed Director General for Biotechnology at the Korea Institute of Industrial Technology Evaluation and Planning (ITEP) in Seoul.
"In conclusion, these volumes would be highly informative for all the individuals working in the area of polymers, biotechnology and food technology. These may not only support research and development but may also be suitable for teaching."
"...I find this pair of books to be a very well-prepared reference to the subject and recommend its purchase by libraries whose budgetary limiations preclude purchase of the complete 10-volume set on Biopolymers."
