Chemistry for the Biosciences leads students through the essential concepts that are central to understanding biological systems, using everyday examples and analogies to build their confidence in an often daunting subject. Placing an emphasis on clear explanations, it fosters understanding as opposed to rote learning and, by focusing on the key themes that unify the subject, shows how integral chemistry is to the biosciences.

Jonathan Crowe is a science publisher and science writer, based in Oxford. He received a BSc Honours Biochemistry degree from the University of Warwick in 1997, and has since pursued a career in science publishing, involving the development of textbooks for both the A-Level and undergraduate
science markets. His science writing credits include a runner-up prize in the 2001 Daily Telegraph/BASF Young Science Writer Awards. Dr Tony Bradshaw is Head of Section and Principal Lecturer in the School of Biological and Molecular Sciences, Oxford Brookes University. As well as managing the Cell
and Molecular Biosciences section, Dr Bradshaw is also School Safety Advisor, and Field Chair for the Cell and Molecular Biology, Biological Chemistry, and Cell Biology and Biotechnology degree programmes. Dr Bradshaw received a BSc Honours degree in Organic Chemistry from the University of Adelaide
in 1969, and was awarded a PhD from Flinders University in 1973, with a thesis entitled 'Bridged Ring Systems'. Teaching commitments involve interdisciplinary topics in areas covering molecular biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, pharmacology, toxicology, and organic chemistry. His principal
research interest is in molecular oncology, an area in which he has published eleven papers.
Dr Paul Monk is Senior Lecturer in Physical Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry and Materials at Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester, where he has lectured and researched since 1991. Dr Monk gained a BSc (Hons) in Chemistry and a PhD on electrochemistry from the University of
Exeter. His research investigates electrochromism and the development of electrochromic materials, a subject area in which he has published over forty journal articles and several monographs. He is the author of two textbooks, Fundamentals of Electroanalytical Chemistry (Wiley, 2000); and Physical
Chemistry: Understanding our Chemical World (Wiley, 2004).
This text is what it says - essential chemical concepts for students studying the biosciences. The inclusion of chapters on instrumental analytical techniques and organic reactions and mechanisms puts this book way ahead of others currently on offer for this area. Anyone involved in teaching a foundation chemistry course, especially for students with a limited chemical background, would do well to consider adopting this as a core text. Linda Morris in Education in Chemistry, March 2007 The authors have packed a remarkable amount of chemistry into this book and yet succeed in not making it intimidating. Undergraduates struggling with chemical concepts, postgraduates who missed out on detailed chemistry courses and staff despairing of the lack of chemical literacy of their students might well find that this book helps solve their problems.
