Providing a good starting survey of the field, this book emphasizes the importance of inorganic chemistry in biological systems. The basic background of the interactions of atoms, molecules and especially metal ions, with biomolecules covers about a quarter of the book. The remainder discusses the biologically important elements, and their occurrence and functions in biomaterials - these are illustrated by certain roles in humans, fishes, beetles, and plants and in varied human diseases, such as cystic fibrosis methemoglobemia, and thalassemia. This upper level undergraduate textbook for students of chemistry and biology is the only current short book covering, briefly, most areas of bioinorganic chemistry.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Wilkins and his wife Pat have produced a readable introduction to the topic of inorganic chemistry in biology. It is bang up to date and is an excellent introduction to the area for students. * Robert W. Hay, Chemistry in Britain, November 1997 *
This book illustrates the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to modern science ... The book will provide an excellent basis to a lively approach to the teaching of inorganic chemistry. It is packed with information, but concise, readable, well-illustrated and affordable - I shall recommend it to my undergraduate and graduate students. * Peter J. Sadler, Education in Chemistry, January 1998 *
