The book appears in two volumes, the first dealing primarily with chemical and structural aspects, and the second with metabolic aspects. The purpose is not only to review recent work on chemical and physiological aspects of bilirubin scructure and metabolism, but also to emphasize the importance of methodological advances and their potential in future studies.
