This book is designed t o give the advanced undergraduate student in chemistry an insight into the field of proteins. Nost of the book is devoted to the structural and synthetic aspects of protein chemistry. Actually, much of the book is devoted to discussions of methods for the isolation and separation of peptides and proteins and the determination of structure. Chapters are also included on the macromolecular properties and structures of proteins, the chemical synthesis of peptides, the biosynthesis of proteins, and importantly, the relationships between structure and biological activity of peptides and proteins.

This book contains the Proceedings of the International Symposium on Organic Scintillators held at Argonne National Laboratory, June 20 to 22, 1966. The papers are grouped under headings deeignated as Theory and AIechanisms: Energy Transfer, Quenching Studies, Lifetime Studies, and Triplet, Exciton and Other Studies; Bpplications; and Other Recent Advances.

System T-60 Multinuclei accessory Another accessory to change the T-60's function, this permits you to have multinuclei capability. With it, you can do a variety of experiments unavailable in any but the more expensive instruments. The accessory is calibrated in parts per million. Outstanding features are a wide search sweep range to 50 ppm, and a larger offset range to 400 ppm. The Multinuclei accessory is another reason for owning the System T.60, a moderately priced spectrometer for both typical and unusual NMR applications, Request Datafile N5-3.
