Vitamins are a group of physiologically very important, chemically quite complex organic compounds, that are essential for humans and animals. Some vitamins and other growth factors behave as antioxidants, while some can be considered as biopigments. As their chemical synthesis is laborious, their biotechnology-based synthesis and production via microbial fermentation has gained substantial interest within the last decades. Recent progress in microbial genetics and in metabolic engineering and implementation of innovative bioprocess technology has led to a biotechnology-based industrial production of many vitamins and related compounds. Divided into three sections, this volume covers: 1. water-soluble vitamins 2. fat-soluble vitamin compounds and 3. other growth factors, biopigments, and antioxidants. They are all reviewed systematically: from natural occurrence and assays, via biosynthesis, strain development, to industrially-employed biotechnological syntheses and applications.

Papers from the 82nd Annual Meeting of the American Oil Chemists' Society in Chicago, IL, May 1992. Because of production costs, microbial oils probably won't replace vegetable oils for general use; but designer oils for specific industrial and nutritional purposes are on the horizon using bacteria, fungi, yeast, and microalgae as production organisms. The ability to manipulate microbial culture conditions and genetically modify the organisms means that oils can be developed to fit particular applications. These 16 contributions discussing current research would be enhanced by an index. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Polyunsaturated fatty acids provide unique health benefits to consumers but also present the technician with difficult challenges in delivering these fatty acids in appealing foods that do no have the off-flavors associated with the oxidation products of these highly labile materials. This book presents a comprehensive assessment of the current state of these stability issues, the nutritional effects and the potential for delivery in foods of 0mega-3 fatty acids.

The journal Industrial Biotechnology has for some years been spreading the word about cooperation between academic researchers and industrial biotechnologists. This cooperation has been fostered by the setting up of Biotechnology Centres to promote the exchange of ideas and enterprise. This volume consists of major articles from Industrial Biotechnology which reflect both the educational nature of much of the journal's output and the very wide range of its subject matter. The articles cover some of the basic biological processes that are the resources of biotechnology and consider major applications in pharmaceuticals, agriculture, food processing, biosensors and other areas. The future of biotechnology and its progress in other countries is also considered. This will be of vital interest for all workers in the field of biotechnology and those who have an interest in the development of this exciting and diverse field.

Patent literature has always been a mine of information, but until recently, it was difficult to access. Now, with the Internet, access to all patent documents is almost instantaneous and free. However, interpreting the technical information provided by patent literature requires a certain skill. This monograph aims to provide that skill by explaining patent jargon and providing background information on patenting. Patents dealing with edible oil processing are used to explain various aspects of patenting. To make the explanations less impersonal, some have been larded with personal remarks and experiences. Accordingly, this monograph is intended for scientists and engineers dealing with edible oils and fats who want to extend their sources of technical information. Hopefully, it will inspire them to innovate, help them to avoid duplication, and provide them with some amusement.

The world is currently consuming about 85 million barrels of oil a day, and about two-thirds as much natural gas equivalent, both derived from non-renewable natural sources. In the foreseeable future, our energy needs will come from any available alternate source. Methanol is one such viable alternative, and also offers a convenient solution for efficient energy storage on a large scale. In this updated and enlarged edition, renowned chemists discuss in a clear and readily accessible manner the pros and cons of humankind's current main energy sources, while providing new ways to overcome obstacles. Following an introduction, the authors look at the interrelationship of fuels and energy, and at the extent of our non-renewable fossil fuels. They also discuss the hydrogen economy and its significant shortcomings. The main focus is on the conversion of CO2 from industrial as well as natural sources into liquid methanol and related DME, a diesel fuel substitute that can replace LNG and LPG. The book is rounded off with an optimistic look at future possibilities. A forward-looking and inspiring work that vividly illustrates potential solutions to our energy and environmental problems.
