Solid hardcover.; "The purpose of this book is to present detailed instructions for the preparations of pure lipids, in particularly their individual molecular species. When selecting procedures for the preparation of lipids from the wealth of methods described in the literature we followed four principles: Reliability. Emphasis placed on procedures whith which the authors have had personal experience. Simplicity. Preference was rendered to simple procedures which can be used in an average biochemical laboratory. Only in cases when no simple approaches exist have complicated methods such as total synthesis been included. Availability of starting materials. We tried to avoid procedures depending on exotic starting materials. Accordingly, the isolation procedures presented use mostly organs of rats or cattle, common vegetables, cereals and some readily available microorganisms. Interchangeability of methods. Usually no single method is best from all points of view. Since the choice of method is determined not only by the nature of the lipid required but also by the experience of the worker and the available equipment more than one method has been included in many cases." - Introduction. ; Ex-Library; 326 pages.
