The FT-Raman spectra of mammalian and avian keratotic biopolymers have been recorded, including bull's horn, cat's claw, bird's feather quill, pheasant's beak and compared with the hard keratinous tissue, human nail and callus. Although there were similarities in all the spectra. particularly in the v(CH) stretching region, the 1450-1100 cm-1 region exhibited some differences ascribed to intramolecular skeletal backbone conformational changes. Of particular significance for human, mammalian and… CONTINUE READING
