With the huge number of books and publications that utilizes different aspects of affinity chromatography, it is still hard to find a freely accessed book that gathers a solid and concise understanding of affinity principles together with its applications in a single volume. The vision of this book is not more than an attempt to provide an open source single volume demonstrating the concept of affinity chromatography with some of its applications that meets the current throughput screening demands of scientists and researchers. This book “Affinity chromatography” starts with introductory chapter that passes through the basic principles and snapshot applications of this analytical technique, followed by a wide ranged practical research chapters utilizing affinity chromatography, written by leading experts worldwide. It is worthy to say that the scope of the information contained in this book is still limited to be covered in a single volume.
Affinity chromatography is aimed mainly at those interested in different analytical and separation techniques, particularly, biochemists, biologists, pharmacists, advanced graduate students and post graduate researchers.
Finally, I am grateful to the all experts who showed positive and specific “affinity“to participate and share in this book with their valuable experience. Indeed, without their participation, this book won’t come to light.
