Bioinorganic Chemistry

Information resources on bioinorganic chemistry.

Bioinorganic chemistry is a indisciplinary scientific branch that examines the chemistry of metal-containing compounds within biological and biochemical systems.

The organic compounds and molecules are composed predominantly of non-metals. Nevertheless, the metals play a role in life processes. The bioinorganic chemistry examines the influence of metals, observed changes by the artificial addition and developed models, for example, about the behavior of metalloproteins etc. Other areas of employment are the metal ion transport in the cells, their storage, transport of oxygen to metals, medicine and Pharmacy metal-active substances, environmental chemistry etc.

Bioinorganic Chemistry: A Short Course

The book provides the fundamentals of inorganic chemistry and biochemistry relevant to understanding bioinorganic topics. Rather than striving to provide a broad overview of the whole, rapidly expanding field, this resource provides essential background material, followed by detailed information on selected topics. The goal is to give readers the background, tools, and skills to research and study bioinorganic topics of special interest to them.

Appropriate for one-semester bioinorganic chemistry courses for chemistry, biochemistry, and biology majors, this text is ideal for upper-level undergraduate and beginning graduate students. It is also a valuable reference for practitioners and researchers who need a general introduction to bioinorganic chemistry, as well as chemists who want an accessible desk reference.
