This volume provides protocols for the biochemical analysis of hydrocarbon - and lipid - relevant products, cell components and activities of microbes that interact with hydrophobic compounds. It includes methods for the extraction, purification and characterisation of surface tension-reducing bioemulsifiers and biosurfactants that increase the surface area and hence bioavailability of hydrophobic substrates
