About this book

There is increasing recognition of the diversity and biological importance of lipids. Lipid modifications of other biological molecules are now also the subject of intense research activity. This book begins by describing the techniques currently used in the analysis of lipids and lipid modifications such as: * Extraction * Chromatographic and spectroscopic methods * Radioisotopic and immunochemical methods The application of these techniques to detection and determination of structure are then described for the major group of lipidsincluding: * Fatty acids and prostaglandins * Phospholipids and related compounds * Glycolipids and glycoproteins Lipid Analysis essential reading doe newcomers to this field and a useful update for more experienced workers.


Introduction; Basic techniques; Hydrocarbons; Alcohols, phenols, aldehydes, ketones and quinones; Fatty acids and prostaglandins; Esters; Phospholipids, sulfolipids and related compounds; Glycolipids; Lipoproteins; Glossary; Suppliers; Further reading.
