Media reviews
Enzymes and how they work is a fascinating topic not only for chemists and biochemists, but for scientists in general, and the current importance of green" and sustainable chemistry has not made the topic any less interesting." " excellent text for those who wish to enter or work in the field of enzyme mimicry." "Anthony Kirby is a first-rate expert in the area and, together with his younger colleagues, leads one through it with care and thoroughness." -- ChemBioChem, 2010, 11, 581 - 583 ChemBioChem "The organizational is logical, progressing from an introduction of the principles of catalysis through model systems to more sophisticated efforts that include biochemical methods to improve the catalytic function of proteins." "The coverage of topics is broad rather than deep, consistent with the authors' goal of introducing enzyme models to a wide readership." "Overall this is a valuable mongraph, particularly for those who are reasonably conversant with the underlying principles of catalysis. The text is very well written and the coverage of the topic is sufficient to give a broad overview of the field." -- JACS, 2010, 132, 3637-3638 Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS)
