  • The importance of metals in biology, the environment and medicine has become increasingly evident over the last twenty five years The study of the multiple roles of metal ions in biological systems, the rapidly expanding interface between inorganic chemistry and biology constitutes the subject called Biological Inorganic Chemistry The present text, written by a biochemisThe importance of metals in biology, the environment and medicine has become increasingly evident over the last twenty five years The study of the multiple roles of metal ions in biological systems, the rapidly expanding interface between inorganic chemistry and biology constitutes the subject called Biological Inorganic Chemistry The present text, written by a biochemist, with a long career experience in the field particularly iron and copper presents an introduction to this exciting and dynamic field The book begins with introductory chapters, which together constitute an overview of the concepts, both chemical and biological, which are required to equip the reader for the detailed analysis which follows Pathways of metal assimilation, storage and transport, as well as metal homeostasis are dealt with next Thereafter, individual chapters discuss the roles of sodium and potassium, magnesium, calcium, zinc, iron, copper, nickel and cobalt, manganese, and finally molybdenum, vanadium, tungsten and chromium The final three chapters provide a tantalising view of the roles of metals in brain function, biomineralization and a brief illustration of their importance in both medicine and the environment.Relaxed and agreeable writing style The reader will not only fiind the book easy to read, the fascinating anecdotes and footnotes will give him pegs to hang important ideas on.Written by a biochemist Will enable the reader to readily grasp the biological and clinical relevance of the subject.Many colour illustrations Enables easier visualization of molecular mechanismsWritten by a single author Ensures homgeneity of style and effective cross referencing between chapters

    One thought on “Biological Inorganic Chemistry: An Introduction”

    1. A curious book, I don't really know who it's for.Crichton starts with a crash course in biology for chemists, and a crash course in chemistry for biologists. But neither of those are very helpful unless you've already studied those topics.The rest of the book is a litany of examples of the importance of metals in biologic systems.That's it. That's the entire book.It wasn't bad. But Crichton usually posts diagrams from the literature with little to no addenda. If you have access to research datab [...]
