This book provides a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of biochemical thermodynamics. A sequel to the author's popular Thermodynamics of Biochemical Reactions
, it describes how researchers can use Mathematica
as a simple and elegant tool to do calculations that were previously impractically complex.
Topics covered include:
- Thermodynamics of the dissociation of weak acids
- Apparent equilibrium constants
- Biochemical reactions at specified temperatures and various pHs
- Use of matrices in biochemical thermodynamics
- Oxidoreductase, transferase, hydrolase, and lyase reactions
- Reactions at 298.15 K
- Thermodynamics of the binding of ligands by proteins
- Calorimetry of biochemical reactions
To allow intermingling of text and calculations, this book was written in Mathematica
. It comes with a CD-ROM containing the entire book along with macros that help scientists and engineers solve their particular problems.
