The field of bioseparation, and biochromatography in particular, is advancing very rapidly as our knowledge of the properties of molecules and atomic forces increases. This volume covers the basic principles of biochromatography in detail. It assesses different techniques and includes a large number of applications, providing the reader with a multidisciplinary perspective that gives the insight to master the many chromatographic methods. Biochromatography: Theory and Practice is a valuable tool for graduate and research scientists, technicians, engineers and teachers in a range of fields including biochemistry, biotechnology, biorecognition and chromatography.
