Accessible and written by an internationally recognized membrane scientist and inventor of membrane technology, the work covers the entire range of membrane systems, from artificial and synthetic membranes to real and in vivo membrane systems. Vieth brings together the conceptual understanding, analytical power and quantitative approaches needed to design new and more efficient types of membrane systems, for example, asymmetric enzyme membranes as biosensors. Models are presented and evaluated with applications to biocatalysis, bioreactors and other aspects of biotechnology, biomedicine and polymer science. One of the highlights is an important, timely chapter on recombinant cell reactors, which presents a complete description of the genetic control system (lac operon) and its stable functioning in a novel reactor configuration. The book will serve as an indispensable tool for designing more efficient and novel membranes and membrane bioreactors.
