Organic Chemistry of Enzyme-Catalyzed Reactions, Revised Edition
- Richard B. Silverman, Ph.D Organic Chemistry, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL, USA
The Organic Chemistry of Enzyme-Catalyzed Reactions is not a book on enzymes, but rather a book on the general mechanisms involved in chemical reactions involving enzymes. An enzyme is a protein molecule in a plant or animal that causes specific reactions without itself being permanently altered or destroyed.This is a revised edition of a very successful book, which appeals to both academic and industrial markets.
Upper division undergraduate and graduate students in the fields of chemistry (organic and medicinal) and biochemistry. Industrial chemists working on the design of enzyme inhibitors in the pharmaceutical and agricultural industries.
