The significance of metals in biology; the environment; and medicine has become more and more evident over the last twenty-five years. The study of the numerous roles of metal ions in biological systems; the quickly expanding interface between biology and inorganic chemistry constitutes the subject called Biological Inorganic Chemistry. Crichton’s Biological Inorganic Chemistry: An Introduction; (PDF) authored by a biochemist; with long career experience in the field (particularly copper and iron) presents an introduction to this exciting and dynamic field. The ebook begins with introductory chapters; which together constitute an overview of the concepts; both biological and chemical; which are required to equip the reader for the detailed analysis which follows. Pathways of metal assimilation; storage; and transport; along with metal homeostasis are dealt with next. Afterward; individual chapters discuss the roles of sodium and potassium; magnesium; calcium; iron; copper; zinc; nickel; manganese and cobalt; and finally molybdenum; tungsten; vanadium; and chromium. The final three chapters provide a tantalizing view of the roles of metals in brain function; biomineralization; and a concise illustration of their importance in both the environment and medicine.
