This volume is the first of a series intended to be published every twelve to sixteen months. It is to serve as a source of reliable procedures for the preparation of biochemical compounds of interest. These procedures are authoritative and checked by a laboratory other than that of the submitter.
The preparations of the following compounds are described in volume I: adenosine diphosphate, adenosine triphosphate, l-analine and l-serine, azobenzene-p-sulfonic acid trihydrate, p-hydroxyazobenzene-p'-sulfonic acid, 5-nitronaphthalene-1-sulfonic acid dihydrate, casein, β-3,4-dihydroxyphenyl-l-analine, diphosphopyridine nucleotide, the α-glucose-1-phosphates, l-glutamine, dl-glyceraldehyde-3-phosphoric acid, lycopene, l-lysine monohydrochloride, lysozyme and d-tyrosine.
Each preparation is described as to principle, starting material, procedure, properties and purity of product and methods of preparation. Footnotes and comments on the descriptions are plentiful. References to original papers are given. This series will provide biochemists and medical investigators with preparations which can be adequately controlled and
