This Month's Lipid Analysis References

The following references were collected as part of our regular literature reviews, and therefore reflect our personal interests. However, most mainstream lipid analytical topics are covered. Among the exceptions are "steroidal hormones", "prostanoids", "fat-soluble vitamins" and "terpenoids". We do not attempt to cover the subject exhaustively, but we do our best to find papers that exhibit novel analytical methodology especially. References are listed alphabetically by the first author.
