Introduction to Bioorganic Chemistry
Among the first persons to develop biooriented organic projects was F.H. Westheimer, in the 1950s. He was probably the first physical organic chemist to do serious studies of biochemical reactions. However, it was only twenty years later that the field blossomed to what is now accepted as bioorganic chemistry.
