In class, we have used the Valence Bond (VB) approach to understand chemical
bonding. At the qualitative level, VB is relatively easy to use and does not require a deep
knowledge of quantum mechanics and group theory. The electron-dot formalism of...
An annotated bibliography for Biochemistry, with links to sources of chemical data on the World Wide Web involving general resources, protein structure, the structure and chemistry of nucleic acids, enzymology and protein chemistry.
