Predicting a century of biotechnology just beginning, Ladisch (Purdue U.) reviews the techniques that have been developed over the past couple decades to separate biological compounds in the hope that the explanations will apply to bioproducts not yet invented and biological molecules not yet produced on a large scale as well as to those currently being used. When possible, he provides mechanistic analysis of key phenomena at the microscopic scale. Among the topics he discusses are sedimentation, centrifugation, filtration, membrane separations, precipitation, crystallization, extraction, and the principles and scale-up of liquid chromatography. The price of the European original would be $150.
