Description

This third edition continues to provide the even presentation of topics and the flexible organization that have made previous editions so effective. Examples of problems with step-by-step solutions appear in each chapter, each one followed by a similar problem for the student to solve. Answers to all in-chapter problems appear at the back of the book. End-of-chapter problems are grouped according to chapter section, with key terms and concepts listed at the end of each chapter. Sixteen mini essays, three of them new to this edition, illustrate some of the creative applications of chemistry principles and offer a glimpse of human involvement in research and development. This book should be of interest to students on first year biochemistry courses.show more
