his volume provides an organic chemical perspective on the biochemistry of sulfur compounds. The authors have applied the principles of various biochemical processes to a general theory of the biochemical phenomena of sulfur compounds. These processes include metabolisms of inorganic sulfur compounds and metalloenzymes, mechanisms of thiolesterase actions, functions of disulfides in proteins, and biochemical redox reactions. Organic Sulfur Chemistry: Biochemical Aspects is an ideal reference for students and researchers in both biochemistry and organic chemistry.
