This is the 1st of 5 books within the Amino Acids, Peptides and Proteins in natural Synthesis series. 

Closing a niche within the literature, this can be the single sequence to hide this significant subject in natural and biochemistry. Drawing upon the mixed services of the overseas "who's who" in amino acid study, those volumes signify a true benchmark for amino acid chemistry, offering a accomplished dialogue of the incidence, makes use of and purposes of amino acids and, through extension, their polymeric kinds, peptides and proteins.

The sensible worth of every quantity is heightened through the inclusion of experimental procedures.


The five volumes disguise the subsequent topics:

Volume 1: Origins and Synthesis of Amino Acids

Volume 2: transformed Amino Acids, Organocatalysis and Enzymes

Volume three: development Blocks, Catalysis and Coupling Chemistry

Volume four: safety Reactions, Medicinal Chemistry, Combinatorial Synthesis

Volume five: research and serve as of Amino Acids and Peptides


This first quantity is obviously divided into components. the 1st part bargains with the origins of extraterrestrial and "terrestrial" amino acids and their evolution. the second one half seems to be at their construction and synthesis, together with contemporary advancements within the synthesis of ß-Amino acids. 


Originally deliberate as a six quantity sequence, Amino Acids, Peptides and Proteins in natural Chemistry now completes with 5 volumes yet continues to be entire in either scope and coverage.

Further information regarding the five quantity Set and buying information will be seen here.
