Edited by Diederichsen, UlfEdited by Lindhorst, Thisbe K.Edited by Westermann, B.Edited by Wessjohann, Ludger A.
The understanding of (patho)physiological processes - the biosynthesis of biomolecules such as enzymes, nucleic acids, and secondary metabolites; the pathways of signaltransduction; or the function of pharmaceutical agents - is of increasing importance not only for drug research ...but also for the development of new synthetic methods in organic chemistry and biochemistry. In a truly interdisciplinary way bioorganic chemistry unites the central questions of biochemistry, medicinal chemistry, organic chemistry, and spectroscopy. This book fills a void in this rapidly growing field of chemistry and gives a thorough yet understandable introduction for advanced students and researchers alike. Contributions of more than sixty scientists provide a topical overview of recent advances in: drug development based on natural products; the biosynthesis, activity, and application of enzymes; carbohydrates; peptides; nucleic acids; analytical methods in bioorganic chemistry. This book will be an appetizer for all - students and researchers alike - seeking orientation in this fascinating field of chemistry.Read more

>Ulf Diederichsen studied Chemistry in Freiburg, Germany, with a diploma work in organic synthesis and completed his Ph.D. in 1993 under the supervision of Albert Eschenmoser at the ETH Zurich working on homo- and glucose-DNA. Following postdoctoral work on radical chemistry at the University of Pittsburgh, USA, in the group of Dennis Curran, he gained his habilitation at the Technical University Munich, Germany, with Horst Kessler as mentor. In 1999, he was appointed professor of Organic Chemistry at the University Wurzburg, Germany, until joining the Georg-August-University in Goettingen, Germany, in 2001 as full professor of Organic Chemistry. He was visiting professor at the LMU Munich and Goering Visiting Professor at the University of Wisconsin, USA. In 1999 he got the Karl Winnacker stipend and Hellmut-Bredereck award and is an ordinary member of Goettingen Academy of Sciences and Humanities since 2012
