Reducing the dependence on the fossil fuels is of critical significance for continued economic growth and a better environment. Supplementing fossil fuels with renewable biomass is the first step to achieve this goal. Due to the element composition, almost all fuels and chemicals from petrochemistry can be generated from biomass by proper processes and catalysts, which motivates researchers to fill the gap in the area of design and development of nanomaterials for biomass conversion and utilization.

This comprehensive monograph covers the utilization of nanomaterials for biomass transformation to fuels, chemicals, materials as well as energy conversion and storage, practically the most important aspects from the design and development of nanomaterials to biofuels, biomass valorization, and solar cells. Chapter 1 is dedicated to Introduction to Production of Valuable Compounds From Biomass and Waste Valorization Using Nanomaterials....
