The dielectric behavior of the aqueous solutions of three widely differing macromolecules has been investigated: myoglobin, polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), and human serum low-density lipoprotein (LDL). It was not possible to interpret unambiguously the dielectric properties of the PVP solution in terms of water structure. The best interpretation of the(More)
Dielectric permittivity measurements are reported for cysts of Artemia, a crustacean known as the brine shrimp. Using coaxial and waveguide techniques we examined the frequency range from 0.8 to 70 GHz. Taking advantage of the ability of this system to reversibly lose essentially all intracellular water, we determined the permittivity over the entire range(More)
Calculations have been performed concerning the deposition of microwave energy in bound water surrounding a biological macromolecule immersed in a continuum consisting of free water and dissolved ions. In particular a previous model of a hydrated macromolecule has been generalised to one where the relaxation frequency of the bound water varies across the(More)
