Bioinspired Superhydrophobic Surfaces: Advances and Applications with Metallic and Inorganic Materials

Frédéric Guittard, Thierry Darmanin
October 06, 2017

Materials with superhydrophobic or related properties are one of the most studied subjects from a theoretical point of view and also for the large range of possible applications, for example, anticorrosion, antibacteria, optical devices, and sensors. The study of natural species with special...

Hemicelluloses and Lignin in Biorefineries

Jean-Luc Wertz, Magali Deleu, Séverine Coppée, Aurore Richel
October 06, 2017

Hemicelluloses and Lignin in Biorefineries provides an understanding of lignocellulosic biomass, which is mainly composed of cellulose, hemicelluloses, and lignin. It promotes the valorization of these molecules in the context of the bioeconomy and presents hemicelluloses and lignin, which are...

Essential Oils and Nanotechnology for Treatment of Microbial Diseases

Mahendra Rai, Susana Zacchino, Marcos Derita
October 03, 2017

There has been emergence of multidrug resistance problem all over the world due to overuse or underuse of antibiotics. Most microbes including bacteria, fungi, protozoans and others have developed resistance to antibiotics, and therefore, this problem is now recognized to be of global concern....

Chemometric Monitoring: Product Quality Assessment, Process Fault Detection, and Applications

Madhusree Kundu, Palash Kumar Kundu, Seshu K. Damarla
October 03, 2017

Data collection, compression, storage, and interpretation have become mature technologies over the years. Extraction of meaningful information from the process historical database seems to be a natural and logical choice. In view of this, the proposed book aims to apply the data driven knowledge...
