Biomedical EPR – Part A focuses on applications of EPR spectroscopy in the areas of free radicals, metals, medicine, and physiology. The book celebrates the 70th birthday of Prof. James S. Hyde, Medical College of Wisconsin, and his contributions to this field. Chapters are written to provide introductory material for new-comers to the field which lead into up-to-date reviews that provide perspective on the wide range of questions that can be addressed by EPR.
Key Features: Free Radicals in Medicine
Radicals in vivo and in Model Systems, and their Study by Spin Trapping
In vivo EPR, including Oximetry and Imaging
Time Domain EPR at Radio Frequencies
EPR of Copper Complexes: Motion and Frequency Dependence
Time Domain EPR and Electron Spin Echo Envelope Modulation
About the Editors:
Prof. Sandra S. Eaton is John Evans Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Denver. Her research interests include distance measurements in proteins, EPR of metal ions in biological systems, electron spin relaxation times, and EPR instrumentation. The Eatons co-organize an annual EPR Symposium in Denver.
