Recent Progress in Surface Science, Volume 3 covers topics on the structure and mechanisms of the cell membranes. The book discusses the incorporation of chemisorbed species; the recent developments in the study of epitaxy; and the "diffusion" or "hydride" component of overpotential at cathodes of the "platinum metals". The text also describes the mechanism of hydrogen exchange in proteins; the nuclear magnetic resonance studies of lipids, lipoproteins, and cell membranes; and the monolayers of synthetic phospholipids. The formation, electrical properties, transport, and excitability characteristics of black lipid films; the structure of biological membranes: the lamellar versus the globoid concept; and some aspects of the role of lipids in lipid-protein interactions and cell membrane structure and function are also considered. The book further tackles ordered water and the ultrastructure of the cellular plasma membrane. Chemists, biophysicists, biochemical pharmacologists, and biochemists will find the book useful.
