A truly student-friendly account of this buoyant area of chemistry
Broad, balanced coverage makes it the perfect resource for those encountering the field for the first time , and for those who wish to deepen and to broaden their expertise
Places particular emphasis on the biological function of the chemical elements, unifying the fields of chemistry and biology in a coherent way
Sidebars discuss the analytical approaches adopted to study bioinorganic systems, helping readers to appreciate the experimental basis of the subject
An Online Resource Centre provides additional teaching materials for lecturers
Bioinorganic chemistry lies at the interface of inorganic chemistry and biochemistry, and explores the function of inorganic species in living systems - from the iron that helps our red blood cells transport oxygen to our tissues, to the calcium that forms an integral part of our bones.

In his book, Rehder provides a broad overview of this dynamic field, reviewing the key chemical elements that have important biological function, and exploring how the chemistry of these elements is central to the function of biological systems.

With sidebars that both review underlying principles of importance to the subject - including the concepts of magnetism and chirality - and discuss some of the analytical approaches that have enabled us to elucidate the biological role of the chemical elements, Bioinorganic Chemistry is the ideal resource for those discovering the field for the first time, and who need a clear, balanced account of the subject.

Online Resource Centre
The Online Resource Centre to accompany Bioinorganic Chemistry features figures from the book in electronic format, for use in lecture slides and other teaching materials.
Readership: Undergraduates and beginning graduate students studying biological inorganic chemistry as part of a broader chemistry or biochemistry degree programme.
