About this item

The concise book addresses with the bioelectrochemistry of biological membranes and their mimics in a homogeneous and thematically unified way. To understand the in-depth the structure and function of biological membranes, it is also essential to understand and apply principles of physical chemistry. In particular, the fundamental role played by the transmembrane potential in modulating the function of biomolecules incorporated in the membrane allows us to regard and treat the membrane as an outright electrified interface. Hence, to understand the function of biological membranes and the properties of their experimental models, called biomimetic membranes, a knowledge of some basic principles of electrochemistry and of the most significant electrochemical techniques is required. The purpose of this manuscript is to construct a coherent thermodynamic and electrochemical  framework to achieve this goal. It is divided into six chapters: biological membranes, electrostatics of biomembranes, thermodynamics, passive transport, active transport, and biomimetic membranes.
