Presents short topics tied to numerical or conceptual ideas, reinforced with worked examples and questions

Retaining the user-friendly style of the first edition, this text is designed to eliminate the knowledge gap for those life sciences students who have not studied chemistry at an advanced level. It contains new chapters on -

* Water, covering the mole concept and colloids

* Gases, discussing pressure, gas laws, partial pressure, solubility of gases, and diffusion

* Metals in biology, including properties, oxygen carriers, biocatalysis, charge carriers, and toxicity

The authors divide their analysis of carbon compounds into two chapters. One focuses exclusively on aliphatic carbon compounds, while the other provides a greatly expanded exploration of aromatic carbon compounds, isomerism, amines and amino acids, including benzene, aromaticity, types of isomerism, and absolute configuration. With a current examination of organic and biological reactions, this instructional volume also features end-of-chapter questions and provides a solutions manual for qualified instructors.

Key Features:

Focuses on the particular aspects of chemistry that underpin biochemical and biomedical studies Includes new chapters on emerging topics of interest Offers a sequence of short topics with numerical or conceptual ideas supported by worked examples and questions within the text Provides a solutions manual for qualified instructors
