Bioreaction Engineering Principles: Second Edition by Jens Nielsen, John Villadsen, Gunnar Lidén

By Jens Nielsen, John Villadsen, Gunnar Lidén

This can be the second one variation of the textual content "Bioreaction Engineering rules" by means of Jens Nielsen and John Villadsen, initially released in 1994 through Plenum Press (now a part of Kluwer). Time runs quickly in Biotechnology, and while Kluwer Plenum stopped reprinting the 1st variation and requested us to make a moment, revised version we fortunately authorized. A textual content on bioreactions written within the early 1990's won't mirror the big improvement of experimental in addition to theoretical facets of mobile reactions in the past decade. within the preface to the 1st variation we admitted to be novices within the box. certainly one of us (JV) has had 10 extra years of task education in biotechnology, and the more youthful writer (IN) has now obtained overseas popularity for his paintings with the most well liked themes of "modem" biotechnology. additionally we're satisfied to have prompted Gunnar Liden, professor of chemical response engineering at our sister college in Lund, Sweden to affix us as co-author of the second one variation. His contribution, specifically at the chemical engineering facets of "real" bioreactors has been of the best price. bankruptcy eight of the current variation is essentially unchanged from the 1st version. we want to thank professor Martin Hjortso from LSU for his immense support with this bankruptcy.
