Broadly accessible to biophysicists and biochemists, it will be particularly useful to student...

Vitamin B12: Advances and Insights

Rima Obeid
January 11, 2017

Cobalamin (vitamin B12) was discovered in the first half of the 20th century. Vast amount of information on the role of the vitamins in human health and disease became available. Cobalamin science was, however, based on theoretical concepts that have been accepted without further proof of facts and...

December 22, 2016

A follow-up to the experimental and instrumental aspects described in Basic Principles of Analytical Ultracentrifugation, the volume Sedimentation Velocity Analytical Ultracentrifugation: Discrete Species and Size-Distributions of Macromolecules and Particles describes the theory and practice of...

Survival Guide to Organic Chemistry: Bridging the Gap from General Chemistry

Patrick E. McMahon, Bohdan B. Khomtchouk, Claes Wahlestedt
December 01, 2016

The Survival Guide to Organic Chemistry: Bridging the Gap from General Chemistry enables organic chemistry students to bridge the gap between general chemistry and organic chemistry. It makes sense of the myriad of in-depth concepts of organic chemistry, without overwhelming them in the...

Applications of Supramolecular Chemistry

Hans-Jörg Schneider
November 22, 2016

Applications of Supramolecular Chemistry introduces the use of non-covalent interactions and molecular recognition for many fields. Applications include the analysis of technically, medically, and environmentally important chemical compounds, their separation, purification and removal, and the...

Tocotrienols: Vitamin E Beyond Tocopherols, Second Edition

Barrie Tan, Ronald Ross Watson, Victor R. Preedy
November 16, 2016

The first 90 years of vitamin E research has produced prolific and notable discoveries, but until the last few decades, attention has been given mostly to the biological activities and underlying mechanisms of alpha-tocopherol, which we now know is one of more than eight vitamin E isomers....

PCR Technology: Current Innovations, Third Edition

Tania Nolan, Stephen A. Bustin
October 26, 2016

PCR’s simplicity as a molecular technique is, in some ways, responsible for the huge amount of innovation that surrounds it, as researchers continually think of new ways to tweak, adapt, and re-formulate concepts and applications. PCR Technology: Current Innovations, Third Edition is a collection...
