Biotechnological Production of Bioactive Phytochemicals of Medicinal Value: A Comprehensive Treatise covers a broad variety of methods for secondary metabolites production (both pharmaceuticals and cosmeceuticals), compiling state-of-the-art material about the current knowledge of in vitro production for a large number of bioactive phytochemicals. Plants are a source of bioactive compounds and specialty chemicals such as ginsenosides; paclitaxel, artemisinin, veregen and nutraceuticals. Biopharmaceuticals are important in human healthcare, and herbal actives are gaining importance all over the world. With natural resources dwindling, in vitro production of secondary compounds on a commercial scale is being more and more required.Besides providing an alternative technology to bypass difficulties, the plant tissue culture (used in a broad sense to include cell, tissue, and organ culture) offers many advantages. In vitro technology also facilitates novel means of conserving the genetic diversity of the germplasm of medicinal plants through cryopreservation, production of novel compounds through biotransformation, somatic hybridization, and selective gene transfer through recombinant DNA technology for enhancing metabolite production.

Photoelectrochemical Engineering for Solar Harvesting: Chemistry, Materials, Devices provides an up-to-date appraisal of the photon engineering of innovative catalysts for solar energy harvesting. This book analyzes the overall progress, potential challenges, and the industrialization of new catalysts in the near future. The primary emphasis is on experimental approaches from materials synthesis to device applications, however, there is also an introduction to relevant photochemistry concepts. This book is suitable for materials scientists and chemists who, through the use of photonics, are in continuous pursuit of improving the efficiencies of different devices used to capture solar energy for the generation of sustainable fuel.Sunlight-driven fuel synthesis is the most sustainable and potentially economical option for producing energy vectors through water splitting. Thus, this book focuses on the design of photocatalysts and water oxidation catalysts, as artificial photosynthesis and hydrogen fuel production via water oxidation (in place of fossil fuels) are two promising approaches towards renewable energy.
