"Comprehensive Biological Catalysis: A Mechanistic Reference" offers a comprehensive review of enzyme catalysis from a chemical perspective. This multi-volume work thoroughly covers background chemistry. The first volume concentrates on reactions of electrophilic carbon, phosphorous and sulfur. Volume Two provides reactions of nucleophilic/carbanoid carbon. Volume Three highlights radical reactions and oxidation/reduction. The final volume, or the chemical lexicon, consists of clear explanations of alphabetically-arranged specialized terms and concepts. A team of highly regarded authors and editors were gathered together to contribute to a clear and consistent coverage of enzyme catalysis. This book offers the first comprehensive treatment of enzyme catalysis from a chemical viewpoint. It lists enzyme reactions by chemical type rather than biological process catalyzed. It presents enzyme catalysis from a chemical perspective. It also provides clear explanations of chemical concepts in chemical lexicon, contains rigorous reviewing and editing which result in coherent, fluid, non-overlapping text, and features carefully selected authors and excellent indexing.

"Having the underlying chemistry and the enzymic work alongside one another and at the most advanced level is going to be very attractive." --D. BETHELL, University of Liverpool, U.K. "Series shows an intelligent recognition of the frontiers as well as good authorities." --RONALD KLUGER, University of Toronto, CanadaAbout the Author:
Professor Michael J. Sinnott is a British citizen, yet is also a permanent resident of the United States. He graduated from the Honor School of Natural Science (Chemistry) Oxford University, UK in 1962. He remained there until 1966 when he moved to the University of Bristol, UK, where he carried out research work in the Department of Organic Chemistry under supervision of Professor M.C. Whiting. He was awarded aPh.D. by the University in 1969.Professor Sinnott took on postdoctoral research at Stanford University, California and the University of Bristol, before receiving the Tate and Lyle Award in Carbohydrate Chemistry for 1978 from the Chemical Society. He was promoted to a Readership in Bioorganic Chemistry at the University of Bristol in 1982, and was appointed Professor of Chemistry at the University of Illinois at Chicago in 1989. He was awarded a University of Illinois Senior Scholarship in 1993. In 1996 he took a Chair in the Department of Paper Science, University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology.Professor Sinnott's current research interests are centered around the phenomenon of glycosyl transfer, using expertise with this type of reaction to address questions across a range of disciplines from mainstream physical organic chemistry, through enzymology to molecular evolution.
