Enzyme catalysis is a topic of fundamental importance in organic,
bio-organic and medicinal chemistry. This new edition of a very
popular textbook provides a concise introduction to the underlying
principles and mechanisms of enzyme and coenzyme action from a
chemical perspective. Whilst retaining the overall structure of the
first edition - preliminary chapters describe the basic principles
of enzyme structure and catalysis moving through to detailed
discussions of the major classes of enzyme processes in the later
chapters - the book has been thoroughly updated to include
information on the most recent advances in our understanding of
enzyme action.A major feature of the second edition is the
inclusion of two-colour figures of the active sites of enzymes
discussed in the text, in order to illustrate the interplay between
enzyme structure and function. Problems, with outline answers, at
the end of each chapter give the student the chance to the check
their understanding of the material. As a concise but comprehensive
account, Introduction to Enzyme and Coenzyme Chemistry will
continue to prove invaluable to both undergraduate and postgraduate
students of organic, bio-organic and medicinal chemistry. Tim Bugg
is professor of biological chemistry in the Department of
Chemistry, University of Warwick, UK.
