Chemistry for the Life Sciences has been produced specifically to help first-year life science undergraduates with the chemical background that they need to support the study of their main subject. Clear and concise, it focuses on the particular aspects of chemistry that underpin biochemical and biomedical studies. The material is presented as a sequence of short topics with numerical or conceptual ideas supported by worked examples and questions within the text. The approach, as well as the examples used, are based firmly within a biological context. Students with a limited background in chemistry will benefit particularly from this volume.
