Overview for Biochemical Engineering: Principles And Concepts
This book, now in its second edition, continues to offer the basic concepts and principles of biochemical engineering. It covers the curriculum for a first-course in biochemical engineering at the undergraduate level of the chemical engineering discipline.
The text first explains the basics of microbiology and biochemistry before moving on to explore the significance of enzymes, their properties, types, kinetics, industrial applications and the methods of their immobilization. It also deals with cell growth and its kinetic aspects and discusses various types of biological reactors with an emphasis on key engineering practices related to bioreactor design and operation. Finally, this book offers a clear description of various aspects of controlling microorganisms in addition to downstream processing. Besides, it covers in the appendices some important topics such as process kinetics and reactor analysis, bioenergetics and environmental microbiology to justify their relevance in biochemical engineering.
