About this book

Designed as an introduction to the subject as well as a survey of current research. The third edition includes a clear explanation of the chemiosmotic theory and covers mitochondria, bacteria and chloroplasts.

Media reviews

Not only is Bioenergetics 3 comprehensive, but the material is presented in a reassuringly accessible form. ...this text is supremely successful. -THE BIOCHEMIST (December 2003) "Bioenergetics 3 is a worthy successor to the second edition, and one that I can enthusiastically recommend." Aubrey D.N.J. de Grey University of Cambridge for MITOCHONDRION (2002)
