Applications in Biology and BiochemistryEdited by
- A.J. Hoff, Department of Biophysics, State University of Leiden, Leiden, The Netherlands
This new book provides an up-to-date survey of existing EPR techniques and their applications in biology and biochemistry, and also provides a wealth of ideas for future developments in instrumentation and theory. The material is broadly organized into four parts. In the first part (chapters 1 to 6) pulsed EPR is discussed in detail. The second part (chapters 7 to 12) provides detailed discussions of a number of novel and experimental methods. The third part comprises seven chapters on double-resonance techniques, five on ENDOR and two on optically- and reaction yield-detected resonance. The final part is devoted to a thorough discussion of a number of new developments in the application of EPR to various biological and biochemical problems.Advanced EPR will interest biophysicists, physical biochemists, EPR spectroscopists and others who will value the extensive treatment of pulsed EPR techniques, the discussion of new developments in EPR instrumentation, and the integration of theory and experimental details as applied to problems in biology and biochemistry.
The editor has done an excellent job. The book is strongly recommended for any research group seriously involved in the application of modern e.p.r. methods in biology or medicine.

...the book will be valuable for several years to come and the Editor is to be congratulated on his timely venture. I urge all people who claim to be active in EPR to study it.
