Explore the state-of-the-art in biosurfactant technology and its applications in environmental remediation, biomedicine, and biotechnology

Biosurfactants for a Sustainable Future explores recent developments in biosurfactants and their use in a variety of cutting-edge applications. The book opens a window on the rapid development of microbiology by explaining how microbes and their products are used in advanced medical technology and in the sustainable remediation of emerging environmental contaminants.

The book emphasizes the different techniques that are used for the production of biosurfactants from microorganisms and their characterization. Various aspects of biosurfactants, including structural characteristics, developments, production, bio-economics and their sustainable use in the environment and biomedicine, are addressed, and the book also presents metagenomic strategies to facilitate the discovery of novel biosurfactants producing microorganisms. Readers will benefit from the inclusion of:

  • A thorough introduction to the state-of-the-art in biosurfactant technology, techniques, and applications
  • An exploration of biosurfactant enhanced remediation of sediments contaminated with organics and inorganics
  • A discussion of perspectives for biomedical and biotechnological applications of biosurfactants
  • A review of the antiviral, antimicrobial, and antibiofilm potential of biosurfactants against multi-drug-resistant pathogens.
  • An examination of biosurfactant-inspired control of methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus

Perfect for academic researchers and scientists working in the petrochemical industry, pharmaceutical industry, and in the agroindustry, Biosurfactants for a Sustainable Future will also earn a place in the libraries of scientists working in environmental biotechnology, environmental science, and biomedical engineering.
