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.
