A new Springer book “Production of N-containing Chemicals and Materials from Biomass” was published.

Recently, Springer has published a book entitled “Production of N-containing Chemicals and Materials from Biomass” edited by Profs. Zhen Fang, Richard L. Smith Jr., and Dr. Lujiang Xu, Springer, Hardcover •ISBN 978-981-99-4579-5, 414 pages, 2023.



N-containing chemicals and carbon materials are a class of important heterocyclic compounds and materials with wide applications. Biomass, especially lignocellulose, is currently the only renewable carbon resource. This book is a collection of studies on state-of-art techniques developed for producing value-added N-containing chemicals and N-doped carbon materials from renewable sources via sustainable technologies. Aiming to improve conversion effectiveness and develop innovative techniques for new value-added N-containing products, topics in the text address recent advances, assess and highlight promising methods or technological strategies, and outline direct conversion routes for conversion of renewable resources to N-containing chemicals and materials.


This book contains 12 chapters contributed by leading experts in the field. The text is arranged into four key areas:

Part I: Production of N-Containing Compounds by Chemical Catalytic Processes (Chapters 1-6)

Part II: Production of N-Containing Compounds via Biological Processes (Chapters 7)

Part III: Application of N-containing Biomass to Manufacture of Chemicals and Materials (Chapters 8-11)

Part IV: N Transformations During Thermal Processes (Chapter 12)

Producing N-containing chemicals and materials from renewable sources has a bright future and will be a potential choice for replacing the fossil-based chemicals and material. Offering comprehensive information on the production of N-containing chemicals and their use in the manufacture of materials from biomass, the book represents a valuable choice for students, researchers, academicians and industrialists in the field of biochemistry and energy.

This book is the 12th book of the Springer series entitled, “Biofuels and Biorefineries” (Prof. Zhen Fang is serving as editor-in-Chief).
