Abstract: Our results and the applications of spectroscopic methods in studying protein-surfactant system are systematically summarized. Those methods include UV absorption spectroscopy, fluorescence spectroscopy, circular dichroism and electron spin resonance. Many studies indicate that spectroscopic methods can be used to not only study the relationship between structure and function of protein but also probe the interaction mechanism of protein and surfactant.

Key words: Protein, Surfactant, UV absorption spectroscopy, Fluorescence spectroscopy, Circular dichroism, Electron spin resonance, Interaction
