A book intended for postgraduate and research level physiologists and biochemists, for laboratories and libraries, and for such industrial users as pharmaceutical companies. The series, "Methods in Plant Biochemistry", aims to provide an authoritative reference on current techniques in the various fields of plant biochemical research. Each volume in the series deals with a particular group of plant compounds. The current, most useful methods of analysis are described, with detailed discussions of their development, and the protocols and suitability of each technique. Case treatments, diagrams, chemical structures, reference data and properties all feature where appropriate, along with a full list of references to the specialist literature. The series was conceived as a practical companion to "The Biochemistry of Plants", edited by P.K.Stumpf and E.E.Conn.
