Written by a preeminent expert in biochemical engineering and membrane technology, Membrane Systems: Analysis and Design covers the entire range of membrane systems, from artificial and synthetic to real and in vivo. It brings together theoretical, analytical, and quantitative approaches to the design of membranes and membrane bioreactors, and unifies the principles of diffusion and reaction that apply to biological and synthetic membrane systems at the molecular level. It shows researchers in such diverse fields as biotechnology, biomedicine, and polymer science how to design new and more efficient types of membrane systems. An especially important and timely chapter on recombinant cell reactors offers a complete description of the genetic control system and its stable functioning in a novel reactor configuration. Biochemists, organic chemists, microbiologists, biophysicists, neuroscientists, biochemical and chemical engineers, and biotechnologists will find Dr. Vieth’s book invaluable to their own work in designing membranes and membrane bioreactors.
