Front Cover
John Brash
CRC Press, Aug 16, 1996 - Science - 528 pages
Presents a synopsis of the theoretical principles and practical experience concerning the interfacial behaviour of bioproducts. The volume offers an interdisciplinary approach to the subject that highlights the importance of interfacial phenomena in bioprocessing systems, and the tools used to study and interpret the phenomena. It contains coverage ranging from fundamentals of bioproduct and solid surface structure to the interactions of multicomponent mixtures in heterogeneous.
