Solution Properties of Proteins

Part of the Biological Methods book series (BM)


Physicochemical measurements find application principally in the determination of size, charge, shape, conformation, interactions (e.g., binding, hydration), and dynamics (diffusion, reaction rates). Most techniques are limited to dilute solutions; some require optical transparency.
