This simple and straightforward book provides an introduction to phospholipid chemistry. Graduate students and practicing research scientists who are encountering these compounds for the first time will find this an excellent primer explaining the methodology for recovering lipids intact from cells and tissues. Additionally, the analytical methodology for the assay of phospholipids, together with a detailed description of the routes to their proof of structure is included. Several "hands-on" examples highlight the basic laboratory procedures.

About the Author:

Donald J. Hanahan, Professor of Biochemistry, University of Texas Health Sciences Center, San Antonio (Emeritus).

Review:

"[T]his book is a relatively detailed introduction to the biochemistry of phospholipids. [T]he author's goal is to provide a 'gentle' introduction to phospholipids without losing the important nuances of lipid chemistry. In this clearly written book, Hanahan has organized the material
extremely well and presents the material in a way that relates the structures to their biological activity. Because key examples are given throughout, the reader new to lipids will have a resource that brings many aspects . . . together in one place with a good list of references for follow-up on
some details. These references would be very useful to a comparative biochemist who wishes to study lipids from lower vertebrates or invertebrates. . . . Whether you are a biochemistry teacher or a student, this book is an excellent introduction to the subtleties of lipids and will act as a guide to
those wishing to extend these studies to bacterial, animal, or plant species."--Journal of Chemical Education
