Amino Acid and Peptide Synthesis (2ND 02 Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a thoroughly updated edition of one of the best selling titles in the Oxford Chemistry Primer series. John Jones provides an excellent, easy to read introduction to amino acid and peptide synthesis aimed at second and final year students. The text begins with a brief survey of the role and diversity of amino acids, peptides, and proteins in nature, and goes on to describe and explain the principal methods of chemical synthesis. With its emphasis on chemical principles and strategies rather than detailed technical matters, the book will be essential reading for all students of chemistry with an interest in this field.

Book News Annotation:

This introductory text begins with a brief survey of the role and diversity of amino acids, peptides, and proteins in nature, and goes on to explain the principal methods of chemical synthesis. With its emphasis on chemical principles and strategies rather than detailed technical matters, the text will be useful for undergraduate students in chemistry and biochemistry. This second edition incorporates advances in the field since 1991. Jones teaches at Oxford University. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The study of amino acids and peptides is becoming increasingly important to chemists because of the growing overlap of mainstream organic chemistry with bioorganic and biochemistry. This introductory text begins with a brief survey of the role and diversity of amino acids, peptides, and proteins in nature, and goes on to describe and explain the principal methods of chemical synthesis. With its emphasis on chemical principals and strategies rather than detailed technical matters, the book will be essential reading for all students of chemistry with an interest in this field.
