The Tao of Chemistry and Life

A Scientific Journey

Eugene H. Cordes

Chemistry underlies life. This book establishes the relationship between the focal point of chemistry - the molecule - and the key characteristics of living organisms. The key is the interactions between small molecules and macromolecules leading to metabolic control, memory and learning, the senses, and drug action.
