Liquid Biphasic System: Fundamentals and Applications in Bioseparation Technology explores the fundamental processes and applications of this new separation system, providing an understanding of the basic principles of the technique and offering constructive criticisms on the latest findings. Including coverage of the background, principles, mechanisms and applications, the book also addresses how to adapt the technology for the purification of useful compounds with greater cost efficiency and greener processing. This is essential reading for bioprocess engineers, biochemical engineers, biosystem engineers, chemists and microbiologists. However, researchers, scientists and engineers selecting and evaluating alternative bioseparation processes will also find it very helpful.
