Emphasizing the importance of inorganic chemistry in biological systems, this book describes the importance and impact of a number of elements, other than carbon, in biological chemistry. It provides a short basic background covering the interactions of inorganic molecules, especially metal ions, with biomolecules. Biologically important elements and their occurrences and functions in biomaterials are also discussed. These are illustrated by certain roles in such varied species as humans, crocodiles, chicken, fish, beetles, and plants, and in diseases such as cystic fibrosis, methemoglobemia, and thalassemia. Important topics covered include metalloenzymes and their importance in the electron transport chain, photosynthesis, and numerous other processes. Inorganic Chemistry in Biology offers concise yet comprehensive coverage of this interdisciplinary area, providing an excellent introductory survey of the field.

About the Author:

Patricia C. Wilkins, retired - previously Research Associate, Department of Biological Sciences, University of Warwick. Ralph G. Wilkins, Emeritus Professor of Chemistry, New Mexico State University.

Review:

`Wilkins and his wife Pat have produced a readable introduction to the topic of inorganic chemistry in biology. It is bang up to date and is an excellent introduction to the area for students.'
Robert W. Hay, Chemistry in Britain, November 1997

`This book illustrates the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to modern science ... The book will provide an excellent basis to a lively approach to the teaching of inorganic chemistry. It is packed with information, but concise, readable, well-illustrated and affordable - I shall
recommend it to my undergraduate and graduate students.'
Peter J. Sadler, Education in Chemistry, January 1998
