As a result of the development of new methodologies, there has recently been a surge of interest in lipids, and hence lipid analysis, among biochemists and medical scientists. This book covers methods of lipid extraction in solvent and solid phase systems, as well as methods of derivative formation needed for a number of analytical procedures such as gas liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry. It describes in practical detail the techniques for complete analysis of both isolated lipids and lipid mixtures. These include GLC, HPLC, TLC, and NMR. Lipid Analysis: A Practical Approach will be invaluable not only to researchers in lipid biochemistry but also to newcomers in the field from biological, chemical, and ecological backgrounds.
