Description

This is a thoroughly updated edition of one of the best selling titles in the Oxford Chemistry Primer series. John Jones provides an excellent, easy to read introduction to amino acid and peptide synthesis aimed at second and final year students. The text begins with a brief survey of the role and diversity of amino acids, peptides, and proteins in nature, and goes on to describe and explain the principal methods of chemical synthesis. With its emphasis on chemical principles and strategies rather than detailed technical matters, the book will be essential reading for all students of chemistry with an interest in this field.
