Download This PDF Book: Physical Chemistry for the Life Sciences (second edition) written by Peter Atkins (Professor of Chemistry, Oxford University) and Julio de Paula (Professor of Chemistry, Lewis & Clark College) and published by W. H. Freeman and Company, New York in 2011

With the first edition of Physical Chemistry for the Life Sciences, life science students at last had a text that explored biochemical phenomena from their perspective – an expertly crafted resource specifically designed to help biology majors master the physical chemistry they needed to know. 

Now Peter Atkins and Julio de Paula’s acclaimed text returns, bringing the worlds of physical chemistry and biology more effectively than ever.

Numerous features in this text are designed to help you learn physical chemistry and its applications to biology, biochemistry, and medicine. One of the problems that makes the subject so daunting is the sheer amount of information. 

To help with that problem, we have introduced several devices for organizing the material in your mind: see Organizing the information. We appreciate that mathematics is often troublesome, and therefore have included several devices for helping you with this enormously important aspect of physical chemistry: see Mathematics support. 

Problem solving, especially, ‘where do I start?’, is often a problem, and we have done our best to help you fi nd your way over the first hurdle: see Problem solving. Finally, the web is an extraordinary resource, but you need to know where to go for a particular piece of information; we have tried to point you in the right direction
