Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Designed to supplement and complement any standard biochemistry text or lecture notes, this book helps provide a balanced picture of modern biochemistry by use of elementary mathematics in understanding properties and behavior of biological molecules.

From the Back Cover

Biochemical Calculations 2nd Edition How to Solve Mathematical Problems in General Biochemistry Irwin H. Segel, University of California, Davis Designed to supplement and complement any standard biochemistry text or lecture notes, Biochemical Calculations, 2nd Edition, provides a balanced picture of modern biochemistry by using elementary mathematics to explore the properties and behavior of biological molecules. The text discusses such topics as Aqueous Solutions and Acid-Base Chemistry … Chemistry of Biological Molecules … Bioenergetics … Enzymes … Spectrophotometry and Other Optical Methods … and Isotopes in Biochemistry. Sample problems are solved completely in a step-by-step manner, and the answer to all practice problems are given at the end of the book. With Biochemical Calculations, 2nd Edition, students will gain confidence in their ability to handle mathematical problems, discovering that biochemistry is more than memorization of structures and pathways. Also of Interest — Enzyme Kinetics Behavior and Analysis of Rapid Equilibrium and Steady-State Enzyme Systems Irwin H. Segel Covers enzyme kinetics from its most elementary aspects to such modern subjects as steady-state, multi-reactant kinetics and isotope exchange. Provides a basic understanding of the behavior of enzyme systems and the diagnostic tools used to characterize enzymes and determine kinetic mechanisms. 1975 957 pp.

I have taught Biochemistry and Enzymology at the undergraduate and graduate level for over 20 years, and have recommended this book every year, to every student. Although the field of biochemistry has changed greatly during this time period, certain fundamental concepts have not changed at all, and remain central to a true understanding of how to do biochemistry. These include acid/base chemistry, energetics, enzyme kinetics, spectrophotometry, and isotopes. Of these, the first three gnerally give beginning (and even some advanced)students the most difficulty. In "Biochemical Calculations" Dr. Segel provides excellent explanations of the most important aspects of these topics. He provides example problems, with the answers worked out in detail, and then at the end of each chapter he provides numerous practice problems (along with the answer). I know of no other source of such a variety of practice problems covering these topics. Any student who expends the effort to work through these problems will certainly gain the confidence to tackle the common quantitative problems associated with biochemistry. Clearly this is not intended to be a biochemistry textbook, but rather a supplemental resource, to be used to more fully understand the topics covered in the early chapters of all current biochemistry texts.

As a biochemistry teacher, I find that a large number of our students are defficient in their quantitative skills. This is because many of them are biology majors, who do not have the best math background. This relatively inexpensive volume bridges the math gap for these students. It also provides the teacher with tools that increase his efficiency in dealing with the problem, without taking too much time away from the materials in the course syllabus. Although it is an older book, there is no modern replacement for what it does.

Format: Paperback
This book is definitely the best to read for anyone who deals with buffers biological systems protein purifications and so on. It reveals a lot of details so important for a practical chemist to know. The information inside of this book will definitely help you to save your time and money. It will in a very good and understandable way explain the most intricate questions. It can possibly change your vision of numerous key processes. One of the best advantages is that there is very little "water " in this book - you won't have to read 100 pages to get to the main idea. Really recommend to the chemistry majors.

I am biochemist, a grad student. Initially I tried to use book from library, but I found myself refering this book very often. So finally I had to buy this book. I bought used book. It was not like new but in a good condition- means no problem in reading, some pages were folded, some markings like that. But the book is awesome.

Has good descriptions of how to solve many of your biochemistry problems and its all explained very well, somethings may be done a little different than what you are taught but generally it follows the same logic. Great for reviewing how to do biochem problems and great for beginners (with prior biology/chemistry experience)

Bought the book used, so as expected I received a used book. The book is very old and well used, but it serves its purpose

Haven't had the chance to work on any problems yet, but was thrilled when the book came way earlier than I expected it to. This came highly recommended by several bicohem professors, so looking forward to doing problems!

The book was in great condition and helped me with my calculations. I'm definitely keeping this for reference even after my class is over.
