Single-Column Analysis of Amino Acids

  • J. Robert Benson
Part of the Progress in Analytical Chemistry book series (PAC, volume 176)


Increased interest and improved technology in determining the primary structure of proteins have placed an emphasis on reducing the analysis time and increasing the sensitivity of routine amino acid analyses. The growing interest in the study and clinical diagnosis of metabolic disorders by analyzing ninhydrin-positive compounds in biological fluids has also dramatized the need for increased speed and sensitivity.
