Summary

With the first edition of Physical Chemistry for the Life Sciences, life science students at last had a text that explored biochemical phenomena from their perspective – an expertly crafted resource specifically designed to help biology majors master the physical chemistry they needed to know. Now Peter Atkins and Julio de Paula’s acclaimed text returns, bringing the worlds of physical chemistry and biology more effectively than ever.
 

Author Biography

Professor Peter Atkins is a fellow of Lincoln College, University of Oxford, and the author of more than sixty books for students and a general audience.  His texts are market leaders around the globe.  A frequent lecturer in the United States and throughout the world, he has held visiting professorships in France, Israel, Japan, China and New Zealand.  He was the founding chairman of the Committee on Chemistry Education of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry and a member of IUPAC's Physical and Biophysical Chemistry Division.
