Description: Biological Chemistry is a fast emerging branch of chemistry, which sets out to understand the molecular basis of life through a rigorous understanding of the detailed structure and behaviour of biomolecules. Filling a void in the currently available literature, Chemical Biology offers a comprehensive introduction to undergraduate and early postgraduate chemists to enhance their understanding of the underlying principles behind the functioning of biomolecules. Including many worked examples and problems, as well as a fully interactive website with useful links to further resources, this textbook actively encourages student understanding.
