Amino Acids, Peptides and Proteins in Organic Chemistry: Volume 1 – Origins and Synthesis of Amino Acids
Wiley-VCH is proud to have published the first volume in a benchmark series focusing on amino acid chemistry. Amino Acids, Peptides and Proteins in Organic Chemistry Volume 1 – Origins and Synthesis of Amino Acids closes a gap in the literature.
Amino acids, peptides and proteins are fundamental molecules of life, ubiquitous in every field of biology and biochemistry and in organic chemistry. The synthesis, analysis and application in catalysis and other areas is currently one of the most interesting and important fields of research.
This book series is unique in its field. Amino Acids, Peptides and Proteins in Organic Chemistry provides comprehensive coverage of hot topics, with this first volume focusing on the origins and synthesis of amino acids. It seeks to provide the reader with a comprehensive discussion of the occurrence, uses and applications of amino acids and by extension their polymeric forms, peptides and proteins.
This authoritative new series comes from the international “who’s who” of amino acid research. The author, Andrew Hughes, is a renowned international expert, drawing also on the expertise of many acclaimed scientists, both industrial and academic, from around the world.
Amino Acids, Peptides and Proteins in Organic Chemistry Volume 1 – Origins and Synthesis of Amino Acids should be found on every bookshelf. Alongside its comprehensive coverage of the topic, it contains a lot of practical information as well as experimental procedures. It will prove invaluable to organic chemists, biochemists, protein chemists, biotechnologists, and chemists in industry.
