This volume grew out of a symposium organized by the students of Professor Myron L. Bender. His research focused on the mechanisms of enzymatic catalysis and was instrumental in showing that enzymes do not possess magical powers to accelerate reactions a trillion times on an average, but follow simple rules of chemistry. A group of scientists who were trained by Bender have contributed some of their work to this book to pay homage to their mentor. The range of topics covered is such that researchers and industry with interest in biological chemistry will gain knowledge from the advances being made in related fields. The book shows organic chemists what advances have taken place in biological chemistry and biochemists will discover how principles of organic chemistry can be applied to reveal the powers of enzymatic catalysis.

We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
CPD consists of any educational activity which helps to maintain and develop knowledge, problem-solving, and technical skills with the aim to provide better health care through higher standards. It could be through conference attendance, group discussion or directed reading to name just a few examples.
Use certain CRC Press medical books to get your CPD points up for revalidation. We provide a free online form to document your learning and a certificate for your records.
