Principles and Problems in Physical Chemistry for Biochemists by Nicholas C. Price
Book DescriptionWhat use is physical chemistry to the student of biochemistry and biology? This central question is answered in this book mainly through the use of worked examples and problems. The book starts by introducing the laws of thermodynamics, and then uses these laws to derive the equations relevant to the student in dealing with chemical equilibria (including the binding of small molecules to proteins), properties of solutions, acids and bases, and oxidation-reduction processes. The student is thus shown how a knowledge of thermodynamic qualities makes it possible to predict whether, and how, a reaction will proceed. Thermodynamics, however, gives no information about how fast a reaction will happen. The study of the rates at which processes occur (kinetics) forms the second main theme of the book. This section poses and answers questions such as 'how is the rate of a reaction affected by temperature, pH, ionic strength, and the nature of the reactants? These same ideas are then shown to be useful in the study of enzyme-catalysed reactions.

Exploring Proteins offers a complete course in developing the skills to be able to understand the way proteins behave and the methods used to separate, identify and characterise them. It equips you with the skills you need to plan and carry out this experimental work, and to understand, analyse, and present the data your work generates.
Fundamentals of Enzymology, Paperback (November 1999)» View all books by Nicholas C. Price
Enzymes are biological catalysts that have a number of remarkable properties. Fundamentals of Enzymology, 3rd ed builds on the strengths of the previous two editions to show how we can understand these properties and explain how enzymes work in cells and organisms and how they can be clinically and commercially exploited.
