Learn BIOCHEMISTRY without stressing out your brain CELLS
Trying to understand the chemical processes of living organisms but having trouble metabolizing the complex concepts? Here's your lifeline! Biochemistry Demystified helps synthesize your understanding of this important topic.
You'll start with a review of basic chemical concepts and a look at cell structures and cell division. Next, you'll study carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids, nucleotides, and enzymes. Glycolysis, the citric acid cycle, oxidative phosphorylation, and the control of chemical processes round out the coverage. Hundreds of examples and illustrations make it easy to understand the material, and end-of-chapter questions and a final exam help reinforce learning.
This fast and easy guide offers:
Numerous figures to illustrate key concepts
Details on DNA and RNA
Coverage of hormones and neurotransmitters
A chapter on analytical techniques and bioinformatics
A time-saving approach to performing better on an exam or at work
Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Biochemistry Demystified is your key to mastering this vital life sciences subject.
Chemistry, a branch of science concerned with the properties, structures
and composition of substances and their reactions with one another. Inorganic
Chemistry studies the preparation, properties and reactions of all chemical
elements and their compounds, except those of carbon. Organic Chemistry studies
the reactions of carbon compounds, which are 100 times more numerous than
nonorganic ones. It also studies an immense variety of molecules, including those
of industrial compounds such as plastics, rubber, dyes, drugs and solvents. Physical
Chemistry deals with the Physical properties of substances, such as their boiling
and melting points.
The present book is included for the students of higher secondary second
year. For convenience sake this text book of chemistry is published in two volumes.
This text book is written after following the revised syllabus, keeping in view the
expectations of the National Council of Educational Research & Training
(NCERT). This book will provide an “inverted pyramid” model to gain knowledge
in all branches of chemistry. The topics such as Atomic Structure - II, Periodic
Classification - II, Solid State - II, Thermodynamics - II, Chemical equilibrium -
II, Chemical Kinetics - II, Electrochemistry - I and II are designed in such a way
that students should have a continuous access to these topics. Hence, the
knowledge gained in higher secondary first year will help the students to have a
continuous access to these topics. The knowledge gained in +1 will help the
students to achieve excellence in the path of quest for chemical knowledge. Many
problems are introduced in inorganic, physical and organic chemistry to enhance
the quantitative aptitude of students. The quantitative aptitude will enable the
students to understand the concepts well.
Inorganic Chemistry provides essential information in the major areas of inorganic chemistry. The author emphasizes fundamental principles?including molecular structure, acid-base chemistry, coordination chemistry, ligand field theory, and solid state chemistry ? and presents topics in a clear, concise manner.
Concise coverage maximizes student understanding and minimizes the inclusion of details students are unlikely to use. The discussion of elements begins with survey chapters focused on the main groups, while later chapters cover the elements in greater detail. Each chapter opens with narrative introductions and includes figures, tables, and end-of-chapter problem sets.
This text is ideal for advanced undergraduate and graduate-level students enrolled in the inorganic chemistry course. The text may also be suitable for biochemistry, medicinal chemistry, and other professionals who wish to learn more about this subject are.
