Nanoscale analysis of biomaterials

About this E-Book: nano-FTIR provides infrared spectroscopy at the spatial resolution of AFM, bringing the analytical power of IR spectroscopy to the nanoscale. nano-FTIR has been successfully applied for chemical characterization in a large variety of biological sample systems.

In this e-book we show how nano-FTIR can:
  • Perform in-situ study of melanine in human hair for cosmetics treatment analysis,
  • Shed light on biochemistry of cell membranes & improve efficiency of drug delivery,
  • Analyse protein secondary structure in amyloid fibrils,
  • Elucidate the nuclear organization of white-blood cells.
