Summary

Marine organisms have been found to be sources of numerous compounds that have applications in industry, agriculture, and medicine. This volume explores ongoing efforts to develop these natural products into commercially viable materials. The book deals with a range of topics, such as photobioreactors, industrial applications of chitosanases, carrageenans from red algae, anticoagulants from marine algae, anti-HIV compounds from red algae and biomass production as a source of energy by pyrolysis.
