A Guide to Phospholipid Chemistry provides an introduction to phospholipid chemistry for graduate students and practising research scientists who are encountering these compounds for the first time. Hanahan describes the methodology for recovering lipids intact from cells or tissues and emphasis is placed on the analytical methodology for assay of phospholipids, together with a detailed description of the routes to their proof of structure. Written in a simple and straightforward manner with several "hands-on" examples that can be followed easily in any laboratory this book will be beneficial not only to professionals but to graduate students as well.show more
