Woodruff and Thomas O'Halloran, also a co-principal investigator and director of the Chemistry of Life
Processes Institute at Northwestern, are a wife and husband team who developed and tested the drug.
Early chapters cover the human body, the chemistry of life
, cell structure, cellular metabolism and reproduction, and tissues.
Now an experiment that simulates chemical reactions in the atmosphere of Titan, Saturn's haze-shrouded moon, adds a new location to the list of unexpected places where the chemistry of life
could have developed--in the sky.
Chemistry Of Life
picks up the story in Tbingen, Germany, where an unlikely experiment in 1869 provided the first clue.
Atomic numbers for the five elements most important in the chemistry of life
appear in binary form along with the chemical formulas for 12 biologically significant molecules.
Science has made enormous progress in understanding how the chemistry of life
works, but the elegance and complexity of biological systems at the molecular level have paralyzed science's attempt to explain their origins," he says.
The Nobel Prizes in physics and chemistry were awarded Wednesday to six scientists in the United States and Europe for advances in manipulating atoms and in understanding the basic chemistry of life
You can think of chlorinated biological compounds as aliens," said environmentalist Barry Commoner, "and like aliens from outer space, the reason they cause problems is that they're readily assimilated into the normal chemistry of life
