Electrochemistry of Biopolymers

  • Hermann Berg

Abstract

The development of the electrochemistry of biopolymers has paralleled research on their structures. In the case of proteins the basic research by the polarography school of Heyrovsky(1)and the electrophoresis school of Tiselius and Theorell(2)started in the thirties, whereas research on nucleic acids and polysaccharides was the focus of interest about 20 years later at Jena(3,4)and Brno.(5,6)
