Description

The lipid bilayer is the most basic structural element of cell membranes. A wide range of topics are covered in this volume, from the origin of the lipid bilayer concept, to current applications and experimental techniques. Each chapter in this volume is self-contained and describes a group's research, providing detailed methodology and key references useful for researchers. Lipid bilayer research is of great interest to many because of it's interdisciplinary nature.

Key Features

· Provides an overview of decades of research on the lipid bilayer
· 38 contributed chapters, by leading scientists, cover a wide range of topics in one authoritative volume
· Book coincides with 40th anniversary of BLM

Readership

Biochemists, biophysicists, colloid and surface chemists, electrochemists, physicists, physiologists, biotechnologists, and others working on membrane phenomena and ultrathin films.
