Why are leaves green and blood red? The answer lies with one family of pigments, the porphyrins and their relatives. These pigments are also responsible for the fundamental energetic processes that make life as we know it possible. The properties of these colorful molecules are now being investigated for use in a wide range of applications, from cancer therapy to microelectronics. The Colours of Life is intended to be an introduction to the porphyrins and their role in life.

About the Author:

Lionel R. Milgrom is at Brunel University, Uxbridge.

Review:


"A lively and comprehensive account . . . . This is truly a book with something for everyone. Milgrom's explanations draw on inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, and biochemistry." --Journal of Chemical Education


"This book starts with the proposition that the fundamental processes which make life feasible--photosynthesis and metabolism in cells--rely on the porphyrin family. Aiming to present the chemistry of porphyrins both to the specialist and non-specialist reader, it will, I think, be most useful for teachers and lecturers wanting an overview of the field. The coverage is wide-ranging." --Education in Chemistry


"It has been some years since a book that reviews porphyrin chemistry was published. The current book discusses the chemistry and biochemistry of porphyrins at the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate level. It is often difficult to find a clearly written description of the fundamentals of an area for students; this book exactly fills that niche, giving students the background they need to read current literature and review articles." - The Quarterly Review of Biology, March 2000
