PROTEIN STRUCTURE IN THE LIGHT OF ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY

Abstract

THE second Procter Memorial Lecture was given in Leeds on September 21, 1945, before the British Section of the International Society of Leather Trades' Chemists, by Prof. A. C. Chibnall*. Prof. Chibnall referred to Procter's pioneer work on the swelling of gelatin and pointed out that Procter himself took the view that gelatin is a chemical entity with a determinable molecular weight, which he gave as 938 (or some multiple thereof)-a figure obtained by a titration method assuming one basic group per molecule. Procter's own work therefore justified the selection of the subject “The Contribution of the Analytical Chemist to the Problem of Protein Structure” for a lecture to be given in his memory.
