Principles of Physical Biochemistry – Kensal E. van Holde – 2nd Edition


The Second Edition of Principles of Physical provides the most current look at the theory and techniques used in the study of the chemistry of biological and biochemical molecules including discussion of mass spectrometry and single-molecule methods. Leading experts in biophysical chemistry these well-known authors offer unique insights and coverage not available elsewhere.Relevant and Applications, approximately 20% of which are new, help students develop critical-thinking skills that they can apply to real biochemical and biological situations facing professionals in the industry.

A new streamlined organization – Groups all hydrodynamic in Chapter 5 and combines Raman with the spectroscopy section.

A true teaching text, this includes exercises at the end of every chapter along with more expanded solutions to half of the exercises.
