Chemistry for the Biosciences: The Essential Concepts

Chemistry pervades our lives, giving form and personality to the realm round us. It molds our weather, fuels our shipping, and offers nutrition its flavor and scent. Chemistry powers existence itself. Chemistry for the Biosciences leads scholars in the course of the chemical strategies which are necessary to realizing organic structures, utilizing daily examples and analogies to construct their self belief in getting to know a regularly daunting topic.

Important developments took place rapidly on several fronts including nutrition. The significance of unknown food factors was clearly recognized by Frederick Gowland Hopkins at Cambridge University and his associates, who developed the concept of deficiency diseases. Extensive series of feeding experiments utilizing synthetic diets were conducted mainly by Babcook McCollum, Osborne, Mendel and Sherman. As a result, many deficiency diseases such as scurvy, rickets, beriberi and pellagra were recognized and their curative agents, which were called vitamins by a Polish biochemist Casimer Funk, were isolated and subsequently characterized.

Addition of water to such solutes may hence result in a small gain of enthalpy; the breaking of hydrogen bonds requires the addition of energy to the system. Furthermore, dissolving hydrophobic solutes in water results in a measurable decrease in entropy. Amphipathic compounds contain regions that are polar (or charged) and regions that are nonpolar (Table 2–5). When amphipathic compounds are mixed with water, the two regions of the solute molecule experience conflicting tendencies: the polar or charged, hydrophilic region interacts favourably with the solvent and tends to dissolve whereas the nonpolar hydrophobic region has the opposite tendency, to avoid contact with the water.
