About this title


For chemistry, biology and bioengineering students, required courses in general chemistry often fail to excite their interest in the many connections between chemistry and biology. This resource for chemistry and some biology instructors addresses the problem directly, showing how biological phenomena can be used to illustrate classical principles of chemistry from structure and bonding through redox, thermodynamics, kinetics, analysis and inorganic chemistry. The authors--all experienced teachers and outstanding researchers--combine examples from biochemistry and environmental, pharmaceutical, and nuclear chemistry with the traditional introductory material in organic, inorganic, analytical, and physical chemistry. The book can serve as a companion to virtually any introductory chemistry, biology, or biochemistry text. It includes problem sets at the end of each chapter, a generous selection of color transparencies, and a collection of black and white figures suitable for reproduction. The work also gives instructions for easy access to public-domain molecular graphics programs that can serve as ideal introductions to today's powerful modeling systems.


"Text that provides examples from biology to teach introductory principles of chemistry and can, therefore, be used as a companion in a variety of courses. Seven chapters discuss organic biological molecules, bonds, thermodynamics, introduction to basic kinetic, redox and electrochemistry in biology, biochemical spectroscopy and dynamics, and the inorganic chemistry of life. The appendix contains RasMol, a molecular visualization and conceptualization tool. Includes a set of color transparencies."--SciTech Book News
