Lipid Science Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Phospholipids Handbook
edited by Gregor Cevc

The Phospholipids Handbook discusses the biochemistry and synthesis of phospholipid molecules; covers all important fields of phospholipid applications; addresss the more physiological aspects of research, such as biodegradation and lipid-related diseases; surveys the main preparative, purification, and characterization techniques useful in phospholipid manufacturing and research.

It also supplies appendices that reveal essential data on lipid structure, thermodynamics, elastomechanics, and solubility.
