Summary
Approachable, yet thorough, this book presents physical chemistry in conceptual terms with a minimum of mathematics. Providing the basic knowledge and tools that every biologist should have to understand the quantitative interpretation of biological phenomena, it covers: Fundamentals of thermodynamics and chemical kinetics ; Fundamentals of spectroscopy and structure determination ; Ligand binding to macromolecules, hydrodynamics, and mass spectrometry. All techniques and concepts are clearly illustrated with relevant applications and examples from the biological sciences. Problems at the end of each chapter reinforce the principles
