Classical and Resonance Raman Spectroscopy of Biological Macromolecules

  • Warner L. Peticolas
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSA, volume 45)


Classical and Resonance Raman spectroscopy have been developed over the last 10 years as an important method for studying the conformation and dynamics of biological macromolecules, and membranes containing phospholipids. The method has the advantage that samples may be studied in dilute aqueous solutions, fibers, films or crystals so that correlations between X-ray diffraction determined conformation and other optical spectroscopic methods in dilute solution may be obtained.
