Overview

Atkins (chemistry, Oxford University) and de Paula (chemistry, Haverford College) present a text for students majoring in the life sciences, including biology and biochemistry, covering foundations and biological applications of thermodynamics, kinetics, quantum theory, and molecular spectroscopy. Pedagogical devices include margin comments explaining mathematical procedures, and appendices of background information from mathematics, physics, and chemistry. Cases develop applications to specific biological or biomedical problems, and highlight experimental techniques in biochemistry and biomedicine. Chapter exercises, answers, and projects are also included. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
