The goal of bioorganic chemistry is to mimic biological processes such as enzyme action, through the synthesis of chemical models with the tools of the organic chemist. This widely-praised textbook is especially suited for the advanced undergraduate or graduate student in chemistry, biochemistry, medicinal chemistry, and pharmacology. The third edition has been substantially revised to reflect new research in the field, and features a major new chapter on self- assembly, auto-organization, and molecular devices. The outstanding figures continue to be a highlight of the book, and were described in an earlier edition as "accurate stereochemical structures...that are the best I've seen for showing the organic chemistry of biomolecules."
