About this book

The field of organic chemistry is often credited as being 'the chemistry of life', with organic compounds being the basis of biological systems - and of life itself. Yet without inorganic elements we would be unable to breathe in oxygen; our nervous system would be unable to function: some of the most vital biological molecules rely on inorganic components, and many important biological processes are driven by inorganic elements.

Biological Inorganic Chemistry offers a contemporary account of the inorganic chemistry underpinning biological systems. Starting out by describing the key inorganic elements, and the biological molecules in which they are found, the book goes on to explore the biological processes to which these molecules contribute, including transport and storage, energy transfer, and catalysis. Using stunning full colour images throughout to illustrate to the reader the intricate three-dimensional structures of key biological inorganic compounds, the book describes the latest techniques being used to probe biological systems, which reveal the structural detail presented.

Biological inorganic chemistry is one of the most dynamic, exciting areas of current chemical research. Biological Inorganic Chemistry captures this excitement, making it the ideal resource for any student interested in the subject.
