About this book

This text presents a pictureof biological hydroxylations and explains the functions of transition metals, Fe, Co, Mn in enzyme reactions. There are sections on shikimates, polyketides, terpenoids and alkaloids, with a further section devoted to prebiotic chemistry. Aspects of the chemistry of carbohydrates and amino acids are covered since they serve as precursors of secondary metabolism. This revised edition includes chapters on chemical ecology and evolution, and charts the latest developments in the field, for example in the detailed mapping of the biosynthesis of viamin B12 and how genetic engineering an enzyme overexpression is likely to revolutionize stereospecific organic synthesis. It also includes questions and answers for the student and a suggested reading list.


Chemical ecology; carbohydrates and primary metabolites; the shikimic acid pathway; the polyketide pathway; the mevalonic acid pathway; the terpenes; amino acids, peptides and proteins; the alkaloids; N-hetroaromatics; answers to problems.
