Part of the Biochemistry of the Elements book series (BOTE, volume 5)


In attempting to write a book treating the physical methods and their application to the special problems associated with the biological elements (Raymond, 1977), several questions were raised about what should be included. All of the known techniques are applicable to some degree, but if one conducts even a cursory inspection of the literature it will be apparent that there has been no lack of imagination in applying both old and new tools to the study of biomolecules and their interactions. A respectable literature accumulates rapidly in all areas, and the total effect is a deluge of information. Broad treatment of all these subjects goes well beyond the space and purpose of a single book.
