With the recognition that oxygen and nitrogen radicals are involved in normal cell metabolism, free radical research has begun to feature in most disciplines in the life sciences. Increasingly, their implication in a number of human disease processes is being accepted, altough conclusiveevidence is lacking in many instances, partly due to the difficulties in detecting and measuring free radicals that have lifetimes measured in microseconds. This book outlines the latest techniques for quantifying radicals and their effects, and features detailed protocols, hints, and tips forsuccess, troubleshooting comments, sample data, and key literature citations.
