The ultimate goal of Introduction to General, Organic & Biochemistry is to teach the chemistry of the human body, while trying to show that each subsection of chemistry is important in its own right. In its entirety it can be used for a one-year course in chemistry, or parts of the book can be used in a one-term chemistry course. It is intended for nonchemistry majors, mainly those entering health science and related fields, such as nursing, medical technology, physical therapy and nutrition. Introduction to Organic & Biochemistry requires some general chemistry background. Features: * A large amount of boxed applications of chemical concepts highlight the important information of the text more clearly for the student. * The definition of each term in the Glossary-Index is given along with the index entry and the page number. * Lists of key terms at the end of each chapter, with notation of the section number make these terms more accessible study guides for students. * Numerous problems are included at the ends of each chapter--higher level problems are indicated New to this edition: * New material has been added, including the isoelectric points of amino acids, non-coding DNA satellites and transcription factors and their role in gene regulations. * New examples have been added of exceptions to the octet rule. * Enlarged discussion on immunochemistry, detailing the role of B and T cells.

Frederick Bettelheim was a distinguished university research professor at Adelphi University and a visiting scientist at the National Eye Institute. He co-authored seven editions of INTRODUCTION TO GENERAL, ORGANIC, AND BIOCHEMISTRY, ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, and several Laboratory Manuals. He is also the author of EXPERIMENTAL PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY and co-author of numerous monographs and research articles. Professor Bettelheim received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Davis.Review:
"I found that the book was written at a very appropriate level for my students. It was very easy to read and understand and some of the problems in the back of the chapter took the information to a more advanced level, if the teacher wanted to use them. The topics in this manuscript are much more clearly presented than our current text, without extraneous information, and the examples are very relevant to the text. Also, the Chemical Connections are interesting and will bring home the usefulness of the information to the students. I think students would enjoy this textbook for its clear explanations and interesting information."
"By having Chapter 3 devoted to Nuclear Chemistry, the students feel like they're exploring new territory. In addition, its coverage of medical imaging techniques is greatly appealing to the medical/healthcare fields, making them feel as if the course is tailored to their interests. In general, my students find the writing in your text very readable and the explanations clear."
"The major strength of this book is its flexibility. It provides the instructor with the ability to go deeply into a topic (such as alkene mechanisms) or to cover it briefly. This allows for great flexibility in the course without sacrificing students ability to student further chapters. I would recommend this text to a colleague since it is the most clearly written and best organized of the available books."
