About this book

The amide linkage is one of the most fundamental and widespread chemical bonds in nature, and underlies the properties of a vast array of organic molecules, polymers, and materials, including peptides and proteins.

It makes extremely interesting reading (Angewandte Chemie, International Edition 19 November 2001) "...will have a longer than average shelf life..." (European Peptide Society Newsletter, 1 January 2003) "...excellent chapters and provides plenty of useful background information on amide structure." (Angewandte Chemie, International Edition, Vol. 42, 2003)
