This simple guide provides an introduction to phospholipid chemistry. Graduate students and practising research scientists who are encountering these compounds for the first time should find this a useful primer explaining the methodology for recovering lipids intact from cells and tissues. Additionally, the analytical methodology for the assay of phospholipids, together with a detailed description of the routes to their proof of structure is included. Several "hands-on" examples highlight the basic laboratory procedures.show more
