Dynamic Light Scattering of Biopolymers and Biocolloids

CRC Crit Rev Biochem. 1977 Nov;4(4):371-431. doi: 10.3109/10409237709105461.

Abstract

Widespread applications of dynamic light scattering techniques to the study of macromolecular Brownian motion have yielded not only a valuable store of factual information concerning solution conformations and conformational changes, but have also provided an important window through which to view the dynamics of internal modes of motion. These techniques have coincided with a resurgence of interest in the solution physical chemistry of macromolecules, including hydrodynamic properties, and the profound effect of intermolecular interactions on both the disposition and dynamics of macromolecules in solution.
