Electrical properties of biopolymers and membranes
This book is intended for researchers in biophysics and biophysical chemistry who are studying the electrical properties of biopolymers and membranes but have little prior knowledge of dipole moments. It will also be a useful reference for undergraduate and graduate students in these fields. The book presents a systematic discussion of the historical development of theories, experimental observations and measuring techniques used to study dielectric properties in biological systems. With emphasis throughout placed on experiment, the author covers some advanced topics and discusses recent developments in dielectric research in biophysics, including a look at some new measuring techniques.
