New Books Handbook of Biochemistry. Herbert A. Sober, Editor. The Chemical Rubber Co., 18901 Cranwood Parkway, Cleve­ land, Ohio 44128. 1968. $29

The results of current research in two fast-moving fields of science are set forth in the "Handbook of Biochemis­ try with Selected Data for Molecular Biology." The book consists almost entirely of tabular data, and care has been taken to assure a high degree of reliability in the data. Eleven sections make up the book: abbreviations and nomenclature; amino acids; peptides and proteins; carbohydrates; lipids; steroids, purines, pyrimidines, nucleo­ tides, and oligonucleotides; nucleic acids; genetics and biology; physical and chemical data; and miscellaneous. Enclosed with each book is a four-color "chart of biochemical pathways," mea­ suring 3 x 4 feet, which outlines the dynamic relationships that exist in in­ termediary metabolism and illustrates the interdependence of the various bio­ chemical systems involved in energy storage and utilization, biosynthesis, and catabolism.

Abstracts, not only of the scientific contributions presented during the Eleventh International Conference on Coordination Chemistry, held at Haifa and Jerusalem from September 8-18, 1968, but of all those submitted, are gathered together in this volume. The wide range of topics covered by the ab­ stracts presents a picture of what is to­ day the state of progress in coordina­ tion chemistry. They are: coordina­ tion compounds in homogeneous cataly­ sis; photochemistry in coordination

New Books compounds; kinetics and mechanism of reactions of coordination compounds; synthesis, structure, and stereochemis­ try of coordination compounds; organometallic chemistry; coordination compounds in biochemistry; theories of bonding in coordination compounds; physical methods in coordination com­ pounds; coordination compounds in solvent extraction; and coordination compounds in nonaqueous solvents.

This book represents a single-vol­ ume source to the principal publica­ tions in the field. Including extensive tables of data and bibliographies, it will be an aid for advanced students and research workers in physical chemistry, chemical physics, biochemistry, and biophysics who are engaged in this area of study. The early chapters provide a general coverage of the triplet state involvement in chemistry, physics, bi­ ology, biochemistry, and biophysics. These are followed by detailed handling of spinorbit coupling in all its physical manifestations in molecules. Much of this material has never before appeared in the literature of the field, and is of particular significance to readers inter­ ested in the areas of luminescence, pho­ tochemistry, photobiology, and weak intermolecular interactions. The final three chapters are concerned with spinspin coupling. The development of spin-spin and spinorbit approaches to zerofield splitting studies is systemati­ cally and succintly developed here, and will be of particular interest to EPR spectroscopists and readers concerned with the disposition of energy among ex­ cited levels.
