White biotechnology is a fast-emerging area that concerns itself with the use of biotechnological approaches in the production of bulk and fine chemicals, biofuels, and agricultural products. The laudable aim of white biotechnology is to create a sustainable society. While there has been occasional conflict between scientists and environmentalists, white biotechnology should lead to a synergy between these two groups of people. It is a truly multidisciplinary area and further progress depends critically on the role of chemists.
This series presents the latest research in these areas from investigators at research institutions and commercial enterprises.
