Gas Chromatography of Amino Acids

  • William J. McBride
  • Jack D. Klingman

Abstract

Amino acid gas chromatography procedures were reviewed in 1962 by Burchfield and Storrs [7] and by Littlewood [28]. Since that time additional procedures have been developed, and several workers have used these procedures to analyze the amino acid composition of proteins, blood, and nerve tissue and to resolve optical isomers.
