Description

The first part of this volume focuses on biosynthesis, metabolism, biodegradation, functions, properties and applications of miscellaneous polymers, such as hemozoin, thymine-containing styrene polymers, polythioesters, polyphosphate, polyhydroxymethionine, polyketides, and natural polyacetals. The second part then goes on to treat the biodegradation of a wide range of synthetic polymers, e.g.
* substituted cellulose
* nylon
* polycarbonate
* polyvinyl alcohol
* polyurethanes
* polystyrenes
* polyethylene
* polyanhydrides.
