Far Ultraviolet Analysis of Steroids and other Biologically Active Substances

  • W. F. Ulrich
Part of the Developments in Applied Spectroscopy book series (DAIS, volume 2)


Representative steroids, barbiturates, amino acids, and model compounds were studied in the far ultraviolet region to 170 mμ. The absorption of pertinent chromophores is discussed with regard to analytical usefulness. Of these, isolated double bonds and monoaromatic rings offer the most promise. The problems associated with this region are also considered.
