Biochemists, claims Steven Rose, Professor of Biology at the Open University, are concerned with four main themes - the chemistry of living cells, how such chemicals are interconverted, and how cells maintain their structures and special functions. In starting from first principles and offering lucid accounts of all these topics, he also provides marvellously concise accounts of energy metabolism and the role of enzymes, and of information trafficking within and between cells by way of DNA and proteins. First published in 1966 and now an established classic, 'The Chemistry of Life' continues to hold its own as a clear and authoritative introductory text. While retaining its emphasis on biochemistry rather than molecular biology, this fourth edition has been fully updated and revised to include the latest developments in DNA and protein synthesis, cell regulation and immunology, and reflections on their social and medical implications.

The field of Bioinorganic Chemistry has grown significantly inrecent years; now one of the major sub-disciplines of InorganicChemistry, it has also pervaded other areas of the life sciencesdue to its highly interdisciplinary nature. Bioinorganic Chemistry: Inorganic Elements in the Chemistryof Life, Second Edition provides a detailed introduction to therole of inorganic elements in biology, taking a systematicelement-by-element approach to the topic. The second edition ofthis classic text has been fully revised and updated to include newstructure information, emerging developments in the field, and anincreased focus on medical applications of inorganic compounds. Newtopics have been added including materials aspects of bioinorganicchemistry, elemental cycles, bioorganometallic chemistry, medicalimaging and therapeutic advances. Topics covered include: Metals at the center of photosynthesis Uptake, transport, and storage of essential elements Catalysis through hemoproteins Biological functions of molybdenum, tungsten, vanadium andchromium Function and transport of alkaline and alkaline earth metalcations Biomineralization Biological functions of the non-metallic inorganicelements Bioinorganic chemistry of toxic metals Biochemical behavior of radionuclides and medical imaging usinginorganic compounds Chemotherapy involving non-essential elements This full color text provides a concise and comprehensive review ofbioinorganic chemistry for advanced students of chemistry,biochemistry, biology, medicine and environmental science.

This book is designed for students of biology, molecular biology, ecology, medicine, agriculture, forestry and other professions where the knowledge of organic chemistry plays the important role. The work may also be of interest to non-professionals, as well as to teachers in high schools. The book consists of 11 chapters that cover: - basic principles of structure and constitution of organic compounds, - the elements of the nomenclature, - the concepts of the nature of chemical bond, - introductions in NMR and IR spectroscopy, - the concepts and main classes of the organic reaction mechanisms, - reactions and properties of common classes or organic compounds, - and the introduction to the chemistry of the natural organic products followed by basic principles of the reactions in living cells.

Chemicals often have a negative Image among the general public. But there is no material world or indeed human beings without chemicals. The material world is operated by chemicals. The title ‘Chemicals for Life and Living’ implies that the material world is staged and played by chemicals. The book consists of five parts and an appendix. Part 1 – Essentials for life; Part 2 – Enhancing health; Part 3 – For the fun of life; Part 4 – Chemistry of the universe and earth, and Part 5 - Some negative effects of chemicals. The appendix gives a brief summary of what chemistry is all about, including a short chapter of chemical principles. No quantitative calculations are included in this book so that it is appealing for everyone – not just chemists.

What Is Life

Seventy years ago, Erwin Schrodinger posed a profound question: 'What is life, and how did it emerge from non-life?' This problem has puzzled biologists and physical scientists ever since. Living things are hugely complex and have unique properties, such as self-maintenance and apparently purposeful behaviour which we do not see in inert matter. So how does chemistry give rise to biology? What could have led the first replicating molecules up such a path? Now, developments in the emerging field of 'systems chemistry' are unlocking the problem. Addy Pross shows how the different kind of stability that operates among replicating molecules results in a tendency for chemical systems to become more complex and acquire the properties of life. Strikingly, he demonstrates that Darwinian evolution is the biological expression of a deeper, well-defined chemical concept: the whole story from replicating molecules to complex life is one continuous process governed by an underlying physical principle. The gulf between biology and the physical sciences is finally becoming bridged. This new edition includes an Epilogue describing developments in the concepts of fundamental forms of stability discussed in the book, and their profound implications. Oxford Landmark Science books are 'must-read' classics of modern science writing which have crystallized big ideas, and shaped the way we think.
