The program of round dichroism (CD) to varied difficulties regarding con formation of proteins and different biopolymers is emphasised during this revised and enlarged moment version. The usefulness of CD and ORD in assisting to resolve structural prob lems is verified by means of many examples, and the main crucial information are tabulated. the writer is essentially thankful to the editors of the sequence Molecular Biology, Bio chemistry and Biophysics, specifically to Professor GEORG F. SPRINGER, M.D., for his or her curiosity during this version, in addition to to the numerous reviewers for his or her positive feedback of the 1st version of this publication. Our formerly unpublished paintings stated during this moment version was once supported partly via supplies from the R. A.

JIRGENSONS Preface to the 1st variation nice advances were made within the software of actual equipment within the learn of the constitution of proteins and different organic macromolecules. Optical rotatory dispersion has been profitable in fixing structural difficulties, and an enormous volume of literature has gathered in this topic. numerous evaluation articles seemed among 1961 and 1965, yet major growth has been made for the reason that 1965. vital new experiences, specifically at the Cotton results within the some distance ultraviolet spectrum, have rendered many past courses out of date in order that a concise monograph can be priceless at this time.
