Key Features

  • Many colour illustrations enable easier visualization of molecular mechanisms and structures
  • Worked examples and problems are included to illustrate and test the reader’s understanding of each technique
  • Written by a multi-author team who use and teach the most important techniques used today to analyse complex biological structures

Description

The book reviews the use of spectroscopic and related methods to investigate the complex structures and mechanisms of biological inorganic systems that contain metals. Each chapter presents an overview of the technique including relevant theory, clearly explains what it is and how it works and then presents how the technique is actually used to evaluate biological structures. Practical examples and problems are included to illustrate each technique and to aid understanding. Designed for students and researchers who want to learn both the basics, and more advanced aspects of bioinorganic chemistry.

Readership

Postgraduates or postdocs plus chemical and biological researchers investigating biological structures

Robert Crichton

Unité de Biochimie, Université Catholique de Louvain, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium Prof. Crichton, originally from the UK, is well known in the inorganic biology community and is invited to speak at many international conferences. He has published 3 books in this area (others on biochemistry of iron and metal-based neruodegeneration) and has taught over 750 doctoral and post-doctoral students. The book contains an essential distillation of the knowledge and material he had used to teach and lecture over many years.

Quotes and reviews

"Editors Crichton and Louro offer this new bio-inorganic chemistry text, focusing largely on analytical techniques…Strategic technique selection is emphasized throughout, for example, matching precision and expense of analysis to the quality of the sample."--Reference & Research Book News, October 2013
