Three species were formed during labeling of the proposed diamine-dione ligand with 99mTc, the bound 99mTc complex, 99mTc-pertechnetate (99mTcO4-) and reduced hydrolyzed 99mTcO2, which were determined by ITLC, and paper chromatography. For paper chromatography, Whatmann No.
Therefore, it is not a "how to" book that describes useful techniques or information for current applications, unless you are looking for information about how to perform two-dimensional paper chromatography. Rather, it offers historical accounts, often first-person descriptions, of many of the key discoveries relating to the central dogma of molecular biology as initially expounded by Francis Crick in 1958: "DNA makes RNA makes protein." This book is of potential interest for aficionados of the history of science, particularly relating to molecular biology, and selected chapters might be of value to scientists in training, or early in their career.

He determined the quantity of each present and by 1948 was able to demonstrate than, in nucleic acids generally, the number of guanine units was equal to the number of cytosine units, and the number of adenine units was equal to the number of thymine units.
